Freshman Facing Almost 
Certain Defeat, Turn the 
Tables and Win Deci- 
sion Over Sophomores. 

The Report of the Last 
Rope Pull in Which a 
Decision Was Necessary. 

No. 1 


First ( ; a me to Come This Satur- 
day. Many Veterans Ready 
for Business. 

The freshman sophomore rope pull 
Saturday proved a disappointment to 
its many spectators when neither (lass 
was able to pull the other through the 
pond, the freshmen winning by having 
a few feet of ropcm ore than the sopho 
mores when the last pistol shot was tired. 
The contest was more evcnlv matched 
than any that had been witnessed on the 
campus since 1918, 

As the freshman hea\ y- weights inarched 
down onto the east bank of the pond, 
many predicted that the disaster ol two 
years ago was to Ik- repeated and the 
sophomores were to gel "Mucked". It 
was a surprise, therefore, when for fully 
three minutes alter the first pistol shot 
was tired the freshmen moved steadily 
toward the pond. Success for the sopho 
mores looked certain when the first two 
frosfa went in up to their waists. But the 
tablet turned. The frosh got into the 
swing, dug their heels into the sod. and 
tugged, with the result that the sophs 
were Checked and the motion of the rope 
was slowly reversed. 

The last two minutes of the contest the 
sophomores spent in a "struggle for anil 
preservation", abonding all idea of re- 
gaining their lead making a worth) 

attempt to prevent a fateful descent to 

the edge of the pond. The pistol shot 
that ended the match came just in time 
to save the sophs from the humiliation of 
taking a public bath before the cheering 
Crowd on the east bank of the pond. Al 
though the n>i>e pull was minus the usual 
■pectade of wading frosh, and although 

the anticipated dip for the sophs di.l not 

come, it could not Ik- said that the affair 
was lacking in excitement. 

The annual tug of- war took place on 
Friday afternoon, and proved to be a 
slight disap|K>intmcnt to the 1600 sped a 
tots who lined the pond, since neither ol 
the two competing (lasses could pull the 
other through the water. The sophonioies 
were captained bv Joseph S. Pike ol 
Soinerv ille, while the freshmen were led 
by Charles l-crnalel ol Amherst. Shortly 
alter I O'clock, Kclcle-e Cordon liud the 
shot which marked the beginning ol the 
longest pull ever held at the college. Alter 
27 minutes of straining and "heaving ", 
the contest was ealled off by President 
Buttcrficld. The Senate agreed to have 
the decision as to the winner to the 
referee. Ptole-ssor < .onion, in his answer, 
stated that he believed that the freshmen 
had gained the most advantage and COO'

1 1 arftest Number of Girls Ever to Enter 
the College in This Year's Class. 

Victory in Four Out of Seven 
Bouts Gives Class of 1928 
Decision in First Battle. 

With the opening of college last Wed- 

Incsday, old Aggie started its 57th year 

Iwith a registration larger than it has had 

■for several years and one of the largest 

Jtrohman classes in its history. Official 

[figures place the total registration at 490. 

Of the regular four-year students, til 

Lie girls, 28 of them lieing in the freshman 

blast, the largest number of girls ever to 

enter the college at one time. The fresh- 

puan class lists 181 members, and by some 

M range coincidence it includes five Smiths 

r is well as one Schmidt, two Foxes, two 

'■alvins, two Halls, two Leonards, two 

Plant ingas, two Prestons, two Richard- 

•ons and two Thompsons. 

The Two-year course has a regis- 
tration of 150. Of this number 88 are 
freshmen and 1(5 are girls. The graduate 
Vcbool, too, shows a good number of 
[■indents, and the college looks forward 
l<> an excellent year.

The freshmen defeated the class of 1027 
in the boxing and wrestling bouts held 
last Wednesday evening in the ravine 
near North College by taking three out 
of four boxing bouts and one out of three 
wrestling bouts. Before the Ixnits a mass 
meeting was held. Among the shakers 
were Starr King '22, Bob Mohor '21, 
"Pop" (lark '87, Captain Herbert Marx 
'25, and Harold Oleason '25 

The freshmen took the boUta without 
difficulty. Tuttle '28, defeated Calanie 
'27, in a somewhat unscientific boxing 
bout; and Thompson '28, threw Sullivan 
'27 in a short wrestling match. With this 
two point advantage for the frosh. the 
remaining bouts netted points alternately 
for each class. Richardson of the frosh 
OUtboned Russell in a very sjx-ctacular 
bout; Johnson threw the freshman Marx 
in a hard fought tussle; Ca|K>n scored a 
IKjint for the yearlings by out boxing the 
sophomore Goldberg who area floored 
several times; (ampell, '27, scored another 
point for the sophomores by flooring 
Baumgartner '28; ami finally Powell '27, 
was given the decision over Wilcox 28, 
although he was completely fatigued 
before the final whistle was blown. 

The boxing referee was Edmund Terran- 
ti and the wrestling referee was Philip 
(ouhig. Starr King and Harold M. 
('■ore acted as judges. 

The freshmen were given a warm recep- 
tion by the sophomores last Thursday 
audit when the annual freshman -sopho- 
more night shirt parade was held. The 
,lass of '27 won the victory with a score 
of 07 against the freshman's 27. 

At seven o'clock the opposing claaMl 
appeared at the drill hall. Here the 
freshmen were severely warned by "Joe" 
Hilyard with loud aceompanicincnts of 
paddle beats and shouts from his class 
mates. The sophomores then lined up 
outside the drill hall and the frosh were 
forced to run the gauntlet, one- by one, 
aided on their speedy journey by the 
paddles of their relentless opponents. 

After their spankings the yearlings were 
lined up in a column of fours and p ar ad ed 
over to the field of battle, making an 
interesting s|K-etaclc in their "evening 

The rules for the fray were slight lv 
changed this year. The first four minutes 
of fighting was man to man, and during 
the remaining three minutes three men 
were allowed together. When seven 
minutes were over the frosh were again 
lined up by the Senate and the missing 
nightshirts were counted. Then followed 
the score of prisoners on each side which 
totalled 21 frosh and 16 sophomores 
making a final score of 07 to 27 in favor 
of the c lass of '27. 

After many years. Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College has taken its place with 
the- other Land ('.rant colleges in offering 
a major in Home Eco nom ics. F.tuphasis 
will 1m- placed u|>on home-making as a 
fundamental vexation. At present, the 
major is composed of the following courses: 
for sophomores, a clothing course; for 
juniors, a course in foo«l and nutrition, 
an advance-d clothing course-, end "Plan 
ning and Building a House" to be given 
by the- Department of Home Fconomics 

cooperating with the D e pa r tmen t e>f 

Rural Fngineering; lor seniors who have 
taken the other work in home economics, 
"The Home maker and Her Community". 
The new course are made- |>ossible by 
the addition to the itaf of Miss Helen 
Knowlton, assistant professor of I Ionic 
Economics. Miss Knowlton is a graduate 
of Mt. Holyoke. She- has studied and 

taught at Cornell University sad was for 

two years in charge of the Department e)t 

Home Economies at New Hampshire 

State College DmiilK the war. she was 
engaged in s|kc ial work with the Y.W.( A 
The past year, she has studied at Teachers' 
College, Columbia and she received her 
Master's degree there last June. She- has. 
during the slimmer, been in charge ol 
spec ial nutrition e linie s for undernourishe-d 
children at the West field Sanitorium. 

The 1021 football season opens this 
coming Saturday when the- Maroon and 
White meet the eleven from the Nutmeg 
State- on Alumni Field. Though a nood 
game is expected every indication seems 
to |M)int toward a win for the Core-men, 
for although the Connecticut team has a 
number "I veterans on this year's squad, 
the home team has almost a vete-ran team 
throughout and is tin- strongest represen- 
tation that M.AC, has put on the i^rid 
iron in some years. 

Practice started Scptcinlx-r 10 and 

about 88 men reported to Oaacfa Gore for 

work. A week of stitT conditioning work 
was put in and rigorous work was put in 
on the fundameiii.ils and the theory of 
football to freshen up on the work which 
was done last spring. During the follow 
lag we-ek several stitT scrimmages wen- 
held and Team A and Team U met in two 
practice games. A large UHmber of stu- 
dents turned out for the Saturday game 
which was won by Team A, 10 .'1. Both 
teams were evenly mate lied and showed 
gocxl lootliall. 

The team to meet the Connecticut ag- 
gregation has not yet lx-en selected but 
a number are doing excellent work. 
(ouhig is at the pivot position and has 
the advantage over the rest of the men in 
seeing service- last season, but Doolittle, 
though not out last year, is doing well 
and has the advantage of weight. For 
guard |M)sition then- are Oavin, Thurlow, 
Gteeaoa and ShunSSmy, all seasoned men 
while L. C. Anderson is making a strong 
hid for the herth. At tackle Mouradian 
is the outstanding man and promisee to 
be one ol the- Im-sI tackles in several v cars. 
Captain Marx is still having some trouble 
from the leg which he hurt this summer, 
but is cxitceted to In- back in the lineup 
scm»i. Ingraliam and Lord are making 
strong bids for the lierth. Al wing 
Itosilion there are several good men. 
Jones, Murdough, Zwislcr. (irayson, and 
Richardson are all working out at that 
|K)sition. In the hackfield there are 
lerranti, McGeOCh, Cormier, ( .ustafson, 
and Molx-rg of last vears team and M. N. 
Smith, Nichols, and Hilyard are sure to 
sec service. 

A number of others are out daily and 
are doing gextd work. Among them are-

What greater tribute could be paid the

and sympathy. 




Not so long ago these columns bore 

testimony to chow the appreciation which 
we fell toward the only preay we had eve. 

known, who decided, alter carefully con 
gidering all phases of the question, to 
enlarge his field and take advantage of a 

wonderful opportunity t<> carry on the 

work which be so faithfully undertook 

here on campus, oa ■ much broader 

plane. Realising thai tins logical step 
was inevitable and that his new field 
would enable him to foetal main hopes 

which were blighted for years, we have 
already wished htm Godspeed, and offered 

him OUI lu.titicst congratulations. 

YV, I. It college last spring with but an 
,Ulii^ as to 1'rcsidcnt Huttcrlicld's 
ILHSeor. but later this rumor was veri- 
,,|. ,md WC fmd O ur se l ves headed by one 
ho has long been on the campus, and 

one who has found a place in (he hearts 

of .,11. not only because of his unceasinf 

efforts as dean of the colleye but also 
because ..I his ability to meet men as men, 
dealing with them in the fairest measures. 
and cO-Operatittg with them in its broade-t 
KBee. I his man is T.dward M. Lewis. 

President Lewie proved himself capable 
,,i ahouidering the vast responsibilities ol 

the position long before he was considered 
as a cadidate for the office. During former 
President Hut terfield's trip to China some 
four year* BgO, Mr, Lewis assumed direct 
rout nil, and we fail to find any flaws in 

his brief administra tion. 

Mr is a man sincere, straightforward, 
and not lacking in courage; and a man 
who rules but does not dictate; and most 
Of all. a man among men. His deep 
sincerity is apparent at all times, and one 
needs but to know him to be stirred by 

his earnestness in everything with which 

he conn- in contact. 

\\'e could not have hoped to obtain 
another man who appreciated Dr. Hutter- 
lield's views and accomplishments more 
than President Lewis, and we feel that 
with him at the helm the college will 
continue to hold to the course, headed 

tow. ml that goal in the dim and distant 

Inline, namely perfection and supremacy. 

The fait that over one hundred eighty 
freshmen have enrolled as members of 
this college is indicative of the results to 
be obtained by carrying a high standard 
at Aggie that is hard to find elsewhere. 
We have prided ourselves for a long time 
on the customs and traditions of this 
institution and we feel certain that it was 
partially because of the reputation main- 
tained here that the new men were led 
to enroll. However, there is time for more 
of this in the future, while a welcome is 

only appropriate once. 

Without a doubt the new men ami 
women have already been made to feel 
a part of the college, but we wish to 
impress them with the responsibilities 
which will soon be theirs, and which others 
have borne Bp before them. Aggie his 
always stood for the cleanest sportsman- 
ship, the highest moral standards, ami the 
best which its students have to give. As 
a result we find the college ranking at 
the top in its class, recognized as a maker 
of men, and accorded all the respect due it. 
You will be taught all this as time gins 
on, and you will learn to love the campus, 
its symbols, its buildings, its history and 
traditions, and in you we pin our faith. 
We know sou will carry the Maroon and 
White to the fore, and we know you will 
follow in the footsteps of those who were 
once in your |>osition. 

Aggie is not a difficult place to spend 
four years. 1 ler demands may DC exacting 
but they are fair; her calls may be urgent 
but they are worthy; and her return for 
all this cannot be measured in concrete 
terms. The feeling which gradually grows 
upon one for this institution is best 
summed up in the song, "Aggie, My 
Aguic" which after all is the outward 
expression of the inner feelings of those 
who prepare here to take their place in 
the world of men, among men. 

The Cider Press is at work again. I lard 
at work. And believe us, it is hard work 
to get the apples to work on, considering 
the way the orchard^ are being patrolled. 
The "Man with the Hoe" (neatly and 
agriculturally appropriate!) has given way 

to the "Man with the Big Stick". 

It may be just as well. Collecting 
postage stamps may be a laudable occu- 
pation, but collecting the college's gra)>es 
and apples is hardly a sporting proposi 



Lives of freshmen oft remind us 

To be thankful for our lot. 
Singing in the early morning 
Is a thing we're fond of — 



Just before we went to the first assembly 
we bet a little bet as to the first hymn 
sung, and later offered our friends a bite 
of peppermint patty, our judgment 
having been promptly confirmed. We 
are glad we won,— from an ethical as well 
as a consumptive Standpoint "The fear 
of the Lord" said a wise old prophet, "is 
the beginning of wisdom",— and the 
beginning of wisdom does not end on the 
Dean's board. Saturday may be a long 
way off, but it is coming, and a stitch in 
time, etc., etc. Ten minutes of study now 
means hours less later. "Verb, sap.", 
savs the highlv moral Cider Presser.

The laws of gravitation and probability,

Philip Barter Hnshrouck 

i )n the mo mini; of Friday, July ISth, 
I'.Ul, Philip B. Ilasbrouck, for twenty- 

nine years actively connected with the 
college, departed this life, when stricken 
vvilh a heart attack while at his home on 
Fearing street. Professor Ilasbrouck was 
the one man whom all alumni recalled 
with love and respect, a man who had 

Served faithfully and unceasing ly both in 
his capacity as Registrar and head of the 
department of Physics, 

Professor Ilasbrouck put his whole 
sotllcd efforts into his teaching, as he well 
brought out in the many ipiaint expres- 
sion sand gestures which left a lasting 

impression upon llmse « ho were privileged 
to sit in his classes. That he enjoved his 
work vv.i- evident, and that he was a 
capable teacher has alwavs been undis- 

Snatched so suddenly from an active 

life, news ol his death came as a severe 
shock to all who knew him. Main never 
i. ali/ed their appreciation for his methods 
and code until they were beyond his 
influence, but many have regretted their 


Feminism is not a word nor a program 
nor a doctrine nor a species of obstrep- 
erousness; feminism is a state of mind 
and of heart. A feminist is a person who 
feels and acts u|>on the feeling that women 
are tube treated and j udged as individuals. 
Such a person has discarded all notions 
about feminine strength or weakness. A 
feminist judges people's intelligence in 
individual, not sexual, terms. If the 
feminist is a man, he is likely to think 
that men and women should have the 
same freedom to choose whether they will 
work and at what. Hut if the feminist 
i> a woman, she is a little more doctrinaire; 
-he knows that women must work, for 
she has learned that where idle men may 
be tramps or clubmen Supported by the 
community and relatively free, idle women 
are supported by men and are subject to 

Feminism usually begins or falters and 
dies at home, or even in the cradle. 
How many homes do you know in the girl 
children have as much utter freedom as 
their brothers in matters of amusements, 
clothes, dirt and noise:' 

And then there is the school even the 
most modern coeducational school. No- 
where are traditional distinctions more set 
and cruel. How often are girls elected 
president of class or societies? A boy is 
the editor of the paper; a girl the associate 
editor. 'The habit among girls of sub- 
ordination or rebellion hardens early. 

And at coeducational colleges where 
intercollegiate athletics dominate social 
life and the leading figures must be men, 

what role do the girls play? A pathetic 
one, usually, judged in the light of the 
relations of the sexes. Earnestly the 
K irls form hard working student govern- 
ment associations and pass quantities of 
sumptuary legislation for themselves that 
has the total effect of making freedom a 
sex matter and making it certain that in 
any minor offences in which men and girls 
are equally concerned, the men will go 
unpunished and the girls will be subjected 
to the harsh rigors of their own democratic 

And then there is the world of adult 
life, a world full of homes and factories 
and offices and associations and clubs and 
restaurants and railroad trains and street- 
cars and stores and banks and poUtkal 
parties and governments. And in this 
world the subtle discriminations that lie 
in a state of mind and in a state of heart 
are universal. They exist in the radical 
parties as in the conservative ones. They 
exist in the restaurants, in the social clubs 
of every sort. They exist where they are 
sup|>osed not to exist almost as completely 
as where they are admitted. There are 
only a few families in which any similarity 
of responsibility exists; there are unde- 
fined borderlines that divide the functions 
of the feminist husband from those of 
the most eTonomically independent wife. 
Perhaps these are biological borderlines. 
Perhaps they are fixed by the habits of 
mind that are ground into men and women 
from their infancy. It is all too usual to 
assume that the traits of mind and 
manner that differentiate men and women 
are protoplasmic, a racial and not a social 
heritage. Like a dubious piece of legis- 
lation the validity of this rule can be 
determined only by challenging it. There 
are still many who, even in this day of 
enlightenment, do not yet feel secure 
about the place of sex under the sun.

Your class has the distinction of bring- 
ing to the campus the largest number of 
new members in ten years. The Class of 
1914 had an enrollment of 202 and the 
Class of 1922 numbered 187, but in 1922 
there was a substantial group of student 
who had been in college as members of 
other classes. Your Class also has tin 
largest enrollment of women students ol 
any class in the history of the College 
and it is the fifth largest entering clas> 
since 1867. 

I understand you have made an ex- 
cellent record in your first week among us. 
I cannot speak from personal knowledge 
excepting at one point. I heard you 
repeat after Mr. Taylor these fine words; 
"Appreciating the worth of the Massa 
chttSettS Agricultural College, I now feel 
ready to pledge fidelity to this institution, 
and hereupon solemnly ami sincerely 
swear to uphold her past traditions and 
present standards, to try to help her now 
and evermore to the limit of my povvei 
and to strive to make myself a worthy 
brother of those who have lived and 
died under the Maroon and While; where 
upon I call upon God, who has ever ben, 
my guide, to help me keep this oath ol 
fidelity to M.A.C." 

Your repetition of these significant phrase 
had a ring of straight-forward sincerity and 
heartfelt unanimity. YOB all meant it. 

I welcome you, then, to the great oppor 
tunity to give further expression to your 
sincere sense of loyalty and co-o|>cration. 
You are here to engage in a delightful!) 
coo|>erative enterprise of young men and 
young women to the end that you may 
write your class name high on the record 
of an honorable ami Moved institution 
I am confident that you will measure up 
to the best traditions of your predecessors. 

E. M. Lrd'is. 


An unusually large class of freshmen 
were received formally into the Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural college Friday night 
by the faculty and up[)erclassmen in 
Memorial hall when the annual reception 
to the entering class was held under the 
auspices of the college Young Men's 
Christian Association. 

Harold A. Cleason '25, of Chester, 
presided at the reception and represented 
the Christian association, of which he is 
president. President Fdward M. Lewis 
welcomed the freshmen to the college in 
a more informal manner than at the open- 
ing assembly on Wednesday afternoon, 
and spoke of his hopes for the class, the 
first under his leadership. Professor Curry 
S. Hicks, head of the department of physi- 
cal education spoke of the college and its 
athletics, stressing the bnportance of 
participation in athletics of some sort 
from a health standpoint. Prof. Frank 
Prentice Rand, faculty advisor for aca- 
demic activities, spoke about activities in 
the college which were not connected with 
athletics. Miss Fdna L. Skinner, advisor 
of women students, spoke to the girls in 
the entering class. 

Music was furnished by "buddy" 
Frost's orchestra for the larger part of 
the evening, and the S p ee ch es were inter- 
spersed with college songs and cheers. 
Cider and doughnuts were served as 

Hates College lost its first intercollegiate 
debate to the University of Pennsylvania 
last June, when the southerners satis 
factorily opposed the entrance of the 
United States into the World Court. 

It was the first defeat suffered by the 
Hates debaters since 1911, and only the 
twelfth out of (HI, intercollegiate contests. 
Among the teams defeated in the past 
have been those representing Oxford. 
Yale, Bowdoin, Colgate, Lafayette, 
Toronto and Wellesley.

The chairman of the crew drive com

Henry Cavendish, an eccentric millionaire 
recluse, who devoted his life to research, 
was the discoverer of the H and the O in 
H 2 0. In fact he first told the Royal Society 
of the existence of hydrogen. 

He found what water was by making it 
himself, and so became one of the first ot 
the synthetic chemists. 

Cavendish concluded that the atmosphere 
contained elements then unknown. His 
conclusion has been verified by the dis- 
covery of argon and other gases. 

The Research Laboratories of the General 
Electric Company have found a use for 
argon in developing lamps hundreds of 
times brighter than the guttering candles 
which lighted Cavendish's laboratory.

Word has licen received very recently 
from a reliable source of information that 
Miss Margaret ("rabtree, a well-known 
actress, who died a short time ago, has 
left a large sum of money to this institu- 
tion. Miss (rabtree was owner of a great 
deal of the real-estate in the Boston 
theater district, and it is said that her 
will included beipie-sts amounting to 
approximately twenty million dollars, a 
large part of which was left to charitable- 
organizations. However, the residue of 
the- estate, which will in all probability 
range- bet w een two arul three million 
dollars has been left to this college. 

This sum, it is stipulateel, will be in- 
vested, the income from which is to be 
used as loans, permitting individuals to 
go through the college-, who would other- 
wise be unable to do so. 

Very lew details are known of this 
bcepiest yet but the facts would seem to 
indie ate that at least a fund will be es- 
tablished that will not only provide many 
with a higher education, but will make 
this college unique in that it will have such 
an enormous principal to be used for so 
singular ami generous a purpose.

aerial attack which the- Goremen seemed 
unable to stop.

goal was misiic c esslul. 

During the second |>criod the hall

this qunrter, Jones, M.A.c. right end, 
lifted a pretty held goal over the bar 

from the 10 yard line for three points. 

In the third quarter the Aggie backs 

gained ground steadily in one- smashing 

plav alter another. 'The Ix-iicr con- 
ditioned Bav Staters tore hole after bale 
in the rapidly weakening Connecticut 

line. McGeOCfa tore through tackle lor a

Both lines did sonic- line work though

strength due in some measure to the- 
(act they have- been out longer than

A&ftie My Afta^ 
Last Saturday was a hue time to try 

out the new aspirants lor the position ol 
sone, leader in college, since it was at a 

game, with a large crowd In attendance, 
but ii proved to be a bad time to catch 

tin crowd m a singing altitude True the 
souks Were pitched a little differently 

than moat ol us have been accustomed to, 

but nevertheless, those in the stand- 
ihocjld al least have been able- lo do about 

two hundred per cent better than the) did. 
|usi because it was the first time that some 

of the sonns have- been tried I his year, and 

even though ihctc were inanv freshmen 
who did not know them, those who have 
been in College a ycaf or over should be' 
able to lx»oni out "S.ns of Old Ma-., 
i buset I l" SO it could at least be- heard and 

appreciated in the op posi t e stands. 

The Way the opposite ends ol the 
bleachers kept apart was pitiful, as though 
they COUM not see the man leading. It 

has always been a mystery to us how, 

when a small group begins sin^inu "Ih' 
HUS Medley" and are joined by the- rest, 

the time is perfect and everyone ends on 

the- same note at I hi' same I ime. Hut the 
minute' a man geta out in front and tries 
to start some other SOttg and give the 
time the whole student body eoc -s to 
pieces. Don't we like- our college sonus. J 

Would it be better if we sin- "Yea? We 

Have No Bananas" or "It Ain't Going to 

K.iin No More, No More" at all I hi' 


If \()[ do not like the son^s we- sing 

wh\ don't you wiite some yourself. If 
you have a tenor voice and don't know tin 

tenor pan to "There' Is A ( crt.iin \ alle \ 
win' don't you sit down to a piano and 
pie k it out. rather than sinn bass and 
make a poor job ol it. J 

There is plenty of time- between now 
and Saturday lor you to get a freshman 
handbook and learn some of the sonys 

which you nia> have forgotten. But next 
Saturday let's harmonize the old melodies 

as they are written anil show the Male's 

stands that Aggie is the Singing College 
as well is the- Fighting ( <>H' 
The cheering was good. Probably to 

make up for the terrible- singing. The 

cheering always has bee n good. A man 

who sal on the Tuftaside last fall is known 
to have remarked that "The Aggie Long 
Yell was the best cheer" that he had ever 
heard, but he didn't sa) it about the

Rushing Season 

The freshmen have be-en properly re- 
ceived anil Idolized, but now they are 
being let down gently io the realization 
that there is something in this college life 
besides being entertained by fraternities 
and being carried to classes. Rushing 
season is over for another year, and we 
are wondering what the men in college 
think of the- one- I his year. 

To 1" sine over half (he class was 

pledged, and (he fraternities as a whole 

each received a fair cpiota, but there is a 
feeling that this year's sc.i-on was not 

what it should have been, and that many 

changes are inevitable. In the past lour 
or live- years it appears that nearly all 
pebble system have been tried out, and 
il shindy remains lo go back to one of 

these, with perhaps a few revisions and 
adopt it as a standard. <>r perhaps then- 
is a feeling that something else might be 

attempted another \ear. 

This paper has served in the pent as a 
medium ol expression lo those who have 
Worthwhile ideas on subjects closely re- 
lated to the college, and it would In- more 
than pleased to print any sentiments re 

Harding this important issue-. The Board 
eloes not feel justified in making any 
suggestions, but would gladly carry 
further those received from individuals 
most vital!) c o nce rn ed. 

There an- certain momenta in ones 
college experience which are itnforgetable. 

One of them is the first time the los.d 
sons chant that g t orioua creseendo of 

"Ma a a a a aasachusetts". 

Another is the first time the long yell 
crashes out from the cheering section. 
Bui here's a point. That cheer can't 
crash itself. It needs the- impetus of every 
VOtC* on the sidelines. Talk to your team 
between cheers, if you can, and when 

you're permitted. But cheer every time! 

Hard! That's OJM time when the mar

murmur is as welcome as a cohra in olel

The Orchards 
A point brought out in assembly last 

Thursday by President lewis which 
louche-el tin- majority of men on the 
campus was the plea for the- safeguarding 
of the orchards. We feel sate in saying 
that raids cm the apple orchards in years 
past have been regarded as a tradition 

of the college, but il is not hard for one 

to reason that it is perhaps better stopped, 

and We clo not doubt but thai there- will 

lie- no more nocturnal visits to Prejrj ■

This month when American colleges are 
I hi own open for another year, it will 
interest and surprise many to learn that 
there are more than ten thousand foreign 
itudentl attending colleges and univer- 
siiies in the- I'nited Slates. They come 
often at great sacrifice to their parents 
and themselves, and are lilted with high 
hopes of accomplishment. Alas, how 
often during the past three years has their 
joy been turned to bitterness at being 
detained lor elays and eve-n weeks at Kllis 
Island lieeause of being in excess of their 
national cpiota. However, the new im- 
migration law eliminates foreign students 
from the epiota proviso, so that from now 
on, there is no limit to the number that 
can enter. 

The welcome that foreign students re- 
ceive at our universities will largely deter- 
mine their attitude towards our people. 
They are usually woefully ignorant of 
American higher education with its re- 
quirements for admission, its system of 
points or credits to secure a degree, its 
dormitory life, fraternities, extra-curricu- 
lar activities, etc. hut they learn rapidly 
and are eager to participate in college life 

and Student activities. What they need 
on entrance is advice, and at American 
institutions at which large numbers of 
foreigners attend, a sympathetic member 
of tlte faculty is usually on hand to act 
as friend and adviser. Moreover, Student 
organizations like the college "Y's" are 
most cordial. In many of the bigger 

universities, Cosmopolitan clubs have 

been, established made up of all tin- foreign 

students and a large number of the 
American Students. These maintain fo- 
rums, debate's, le-clures, concerts, dances, 

et.. Columbia University is building a 

new Cosmopolitan Club House to cost 
1 1,600,000, anil to bouse six hundred 
students, and to have in addition a swim- 
ming pool, gymnasium, library, lecture 

and concert halls, and in fact everything 

that will bring the foreign student into 
U-tter contact with American life and 

There is little difficulty in the European 
student's finding himself in the American 
college or university, but among the 
thousands from India, China, Japan and 
Latin America, some have unfortunate 
experiences. Although main American 
institutions have- foreign student advisors, 
a few have not. At an engineering school 
of national reputation, a representative of 
the institute two years ago found over 
fifty Latin American students living in 
epiarters entirely by themselves s|K-aking 
Spanish almost exclusively, meeting Amer- 
ican students only in classrooms, ami 
wholly divorced from anything going on 
about them save the actual classroom 
work. They retured to their native 
countries almosi as ignorant of American 
life and customs as when they arrived. 
Again the action of individual students or 
groups of students may destroy the intl- 
ence of the best organized administration, 
as happened, for example, in a co-educa- 
tional college in the Middle West attended 
by a considerable number of Chinese 
students. These young men were indig- 
nant at the refusal of a leading girl student 
to dance with them simply because of their 
race. In some universities in the larger 
cities, Hindu students have had most un- 
pleasant experiences in searching for 
lodgings, experiences causing resentment 
and leading to unfortunate consequences. 
Often these students are picked men of 
their own countries and who will be 
leaders of public opinion in their native 
lands and who will be largely instrumental 
in determining the attitude of their 
countrymen towards America and things 

Happily such experiences are few, but 
the writer knows of one such incident 
that could be cited on this campus within 
recent date. Of course the student body 
at larxe were wholly unconscious of this 
instance, but it is time we opened our 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

The other day I ran across a 
thought which may be of interest 
Collegian readers. I quote it from 
recent book by William T. Tilden 2nj 
entitled "Singles and Doubles". 

"Nobody will gainsay that football .1 
baseball are splendid sports, and, at 
means of competitive athleties ami 
certain amount of advertising for t|

Nevertheless they fail singularly from i 
standpoint of the individual. 

"Physical exercise is essential to ph\. 
cal fitness. Physical fitness is absolm,] 
necessary for efheient production in tl 
world of business, art, or science, b

"Vet the scholastic institutions 
America turn their students out into i 
world with no sport they can play 
future years. Can you imagine a k'", 
of busy merchants running out to the cm

v. i ^ECAUSE efficient machinery is now and always will 
■*-' be indispensable to profitable farming, this subject is 
of prime importance to every man who would master the 
fundamentals of Agriculture. 

No machine is perfect, but the tendency must always be 
toward greater perfection because no machine can long 
survive except as it demonstrates superior efficiency, 
economy and dependability. 

The series of Case advertisements which will appear in 
this magazine during this school year will tell the inter- 
esting story of the Case Engineering Code — how, through 
a system which provides sure, steady, orderly progress 
toward perfection, Case machines are kept as near as pos- 
sible to the top notch of efficiency and economy. 

It's an unusual story; one that will, we hope, prove both 
interesting and helpful to you in your future work.

Authorities, Students, Everyone is 
Wondering but No One Seems to 

One of the principal topics of discussion 
on the campus during the last week was 
OM about which nothing definite was 
known. The subject of the late Mis- 
Lott a (rabtree's millions is still a matter 
of speculation and conjecture. Inter- 
viewed by a member of the Collegian 
Staff, President Lewis said that the 
college officials did not have any authori- 
tative information about the matter as 
yet. One of the trustees has been re- 
quested to get a copy of the will. 

The subject has been much discussed 
in the press, both editorially and as a 
news item. From such sources the 
college has all its present information. 
Hie amount wnich will become available 
for the graduates of Aggie has varied in 
these amn u rt sf roi n »2fi0,000tog6,000,00a 

President Lewis estimates that some 
twelve to fifteen per cent of each graduat- 
ing dass will benefit from the bequest 
More men would probably come to Aggie 

knowing that money would be available 
to start them in agriculture at the end ol 
their college course. 

Naturally several problems would arise 
in connection with the administration of 
the terms of the will. Difficulty would 
appear if some of the terms said to occur 
in the will were found not to be defined. 
There would also be the problem of who 
should decide to whom the money will go. 

Editorially the Springfield Republican 
said in part: "It is possible, perhaps, to 
infer that while Miss Crabtree earnestly 
desired to dedicate her fortune to worthy- 
causes, she sought objects not heretofore 
thought of. The use of the residue of the 
estate— a residue apparently in excess of 
*1,<MK),(XX)— for financial aid to graduates 
of the Massachusetts Agricultural College 
at Amherst may almost be characterized 
as an endowment of scientific Massachu- 
setts agriculture. Thus is established a 
private farm loan fund, the beneficiaries 
of which will need no sureties save charac- 
ter, ability and honest pu rpose , Original 
thought and intention are manifest in 
this provision. Yet can it not be said to 
indicate discernment of a social need?" 

The ordinarily placid waters of the 
campus pond were turned into a rolling 
sea last Saturday afternoon when four 
members of the freshman class entered 
the |x>nd by the acrid route with (he 
assistance of four husky sophomoies. 
The occasion was the hrM pond party 
of the year.

certainly fulfilling their mission, and as 

time ^ucs on, this body will have t-stuh- 
lishcd a reputation, not only for itself but 
for the college, which is its ultimate aim. 

The most profitable work von can do is 
lo discover the good there is in your 
neighbor and tell him about it. 


A little over two years ago there was 
much elation MMMg the students of this 
college when it was learned that the MOM 
ary appropriation had been obtained tor a 

new chemistry building on the campus, to 
take the place of the old structure then 
standing, which had been in the service ol 
the college for a King period of years. Since 
that time the old wooden structure has 
not only been rated by lire, but a new 
brick building embodying all the essentials 
of a modern chemistry laboratory, has 
ii>en to take its place. 

The dedication of the new < .ocssmann 
Laboratory last Friday afternoon marked 
a new step in the progress of the college, 
and was attended with fitting honors. 
A news item towtiiH', the details appears 
cist where in these columns, but a few 
WOrde as to the significance of this cere- 
mony are highly appropriate at this time. 
The Massachusetts Agricultural College 
is noted far and wide for its splendid 

chemistry department ami the high rtand- 

tlanl of men that it is turning out annually 
from its courses. This prestige is the re 
suit of years of pei feeling and remodelling, 
and the reward for the unstinted efforts 
t.f the men who have in the past been at 

the head of this important division. With 

this new fully equipped building these 
■plendtd achievements should be made 
even greater, and in the future it should be 
I feature to draw more men to the college, 
as well as visitors of note. 

Thus another chapter is written in 
the annate ol this institution, ami the 
foundation is layed for main to follow, 
along the lines of research and training. 

High School Stuff 

An incident look plate in the cheering 
section at last Sat urday's game which we 
did not believe would ever be brought out 
by any Aggie men. If I man sits in the 

Aggie stands end wishes to cheer for 
Aggies opponents, what is the harm in 
lining him? of course that individual 

WOttld show a lot of either nerve or ignor- 
ance, but he is in all probability boosting 
the team width be thinks is the better, 

end what difference does it make just 

where a man sits. There were no signs or 
guardl It) warn spectators that if they 
wished to cheer for Hates Saturday they 
must sit on the east sitle of the gritliron. 
And if, when a man finds himself on the 
wrong sitle, as we accept the division, ami 
doesn't care to make the change, there is 
no law in the world that says he must 
sit quietly and listen to those around him 
-limit for their idols. 

We'll admit that it gets under one's 
skin to hear one continually pointing out 
the impossibilities of a victory by our 
team, ami that it is also practically im- 
possible for one to refrain from "razzing" 
during the most exciting part of the game, 
but it is high school stuff at best, and 
hdrdly becoming to men in a college like 

\l. AC. 

We also understand that the particular 
individual la qneetioa was relieved of 

certain financial assets after the outcome 
of the game hail been determined, which 
in itself is perhaps the more appropriate 
way of showing him that he picked the 
wrong aggregation to win. Not that we 
advocate o|>en belting, but there again 
the hospitable attitude may be shown, in 
covering a wager. 

We merely aim to bring again before the 
student body the necessity of showing tin- 
best of sportsmanship, anil the fact that 
since the founding of the college, the 
policy of the students has always been 
that every man has a right to his views, 
even though they may not be strictly in 
harmony with those of others. Also that 
we may never be so narrow-minded but 
that anyone may voice his or her opinion 
without bringing the curse of the mass 
upon them. 

The big question in our minds is: Why 
do they call tehm pond parties? Why not 
algae parties, or entomological expedi- 
tions, or botanical explorations (the lower 
forms, of course)? A freshman splashing 
into the i>ond gets equal amounts of 
discipline and green slime -and that 
gives one the idea; why not send especially 
refractory frosh in beforehand with 
brooms to clear a landing span- for their 
only mildly depraved brothers? 

As it is, the surface decorations are 

anything but appethnag. 






The Maroon Key 

Many people were led to wonder at the 
new white hats which appeared at the 

football game last Saturday, worn by 
members of the sophomore class. For the 
edification of all, including alumni who 
have perhaps BOt heard of this new organi- 
zation, it is the Maroon Key, an honorary 
society for the entertainment of visiting 
teams on our campus. The idea was taken 
from some of the larger colleges ami uni- 
versities, where it was trietl out with 

gratifying results, and here on the campus, 

though it was started less than a ycai 
ago. it has proved an excellent means of 
show tag hospitality and of making visitors' 
sojourns with ns pleasant ones. 

Our opponents in s|>orts are met upon 
their arrival to the campus and someone 
of the organization is constantly with 
them, pointing out the points of interest, 
and making them feel at home generally. 

That the organization is already a 
success is shown by a communication re- 
ceived from "Dolly'' Dole, now coaching 

at Connecticut "Aggie", who took special 
pains to comment upon the efficiency of 
the society at Saturday's game, and of 
the impression it made upon ids men. It 

is not so much that this one group creates 
a favorable atmosphere, as it is that they 
are able to make the campus seem more 
interesting than a mere collection of 
buildings, and after all, the ortler is 
merely an index of the sentiment of the 
cntin Student body toward visiting aggre- 

There is no doubt but that if any group

Which is no mean feat, for in spite of the

succeed in hearing somewhat less than 
one-fourth of the talks per term. Mr.

how to say it in a way that made each of 
his hearers feel personally responsible for 
the future conduct of his friends as well 
as himself. And, praise a merciful

Apparently, a good many individuals 
are sent to college simply to fill in the 
period of indecision between high school 

graduation and entering business. The 

average man enters college at a time when 
he is just beginning to see the value <>l 
the higher things of learning, ethics and 
religion. Hut on graduation the high 
hopes of the freshman year are all 
shattered. He has lost himself Ut accumu- 
lating knowledge with little or no wisdom. 
Often the student i.-. gifted, could be really 
find his true self. Sometimes he is swim- 
ming too long in waters altogether too 
deep for him. The commencement 
orators may talk as they will about the 
call to service, and the colleges may be, 
as they are, sincerely trying to prepare 
students for citizenship, but those who 
are interest etl in facing the realities ol 
our educational system must face tins 
fact : in all our colleges every year, a large 
group of Student! toward the close of their 
college careers are unprepared for life. 
They are failures practically and spiritu- 
ally, and omens to their families and 
enemies of higher education of what 
damage a college education can do. 

There is at present in this country a 
sharp cleft between cultural and profes- 
sional education. On one hand the 
liberal arts college lingers from the inertia 
of habit and tradition. Many of its more 
orthodox professors teach the same- 
abstract irrelevance as if they were 
teaching young, independent aristocrats 
of an Arcadia forever free from the 
demands of time, spate and money. 
The university owes it to society and to 
the student in particular to turn out in 
its graduate* young men who besides 
loving the true, the good and the beauti- 
ful, are expertly trained to do a specific 
kind of work for themselves and for 
society. Put the professional adherents 
have exalted the technical as over against 
the liberal arts training. Their highest 
vision has been that of turning job-hunters 
into job-holders. 

There is a growing belief in some aca- 
demic headquarters that the day of the 
four year college course is over. Following 
the high school, it is prophesied that 
there will be two years of junior college- 
similar to the pre-professional work in 
our larger universities. After those two 
years, in character like the closing years 
of the French Lycee or the German gym- 
nasium, a student w ill naturally move into 
some special professional or scholarly- 
training in the university. By that time 
there are plenty of economic ami psycho- 
logical reasons why a student should 
begin to follow a particular lient. The 
so-called liberal art studies will not 
necessarily end with the beginning of 
professional work. Much ethics, psycho- 
logy ami history and much of what goes 
by the name of philosophy might very- 
well be closely integrated with the work 
of the professional school. The technical 
work and the broader interpretation 
would throw light on each other. 

There are beginning already to be 
scattered up antl down this country, 
business men who are not ipso facto 
Philistines, lawyers and industrialists, 
but who arc both practical and humane. 
The college graduates of the future may- 
find themselves not altogether unhappy 
in the so-called outside world. They will 
bring to the practical worltl of our civili- 
zation the spirit and perspective of the 
humanist. To the realm of ideas antl 
ideals they will give something more of 
body, solidity and living incarnation 
than is possible for those whose vision 
has never been disciplined by contact 
with affairs. They will respect books 
without being merely bookish, love love- 
liness so much that they will try to realize 
it in something more public and perma- 
nent than dreams. They will be as tie- 
voted as ever to goodness, beauty and 
truth, but they will try activly to shape 
the realm of practice and affairs a little 
more nearly after ideal images. — The 
Century Magazine.

Time was, anil some people think si, 
is, when the singing of college saagi 
between the halves of a football game w.iJ 
considered quite as great an opportunin 
to exhibit the talent of the institution 
as the game itself. Ami whether it is mJ 
considered or not, the fact is that tlu-l 
reputation ol the college is considerably! 
influenced by the type of performaacel 

that is Staged between the halves. Some 
of us who cherish the high reputation of 
our Alma Mater have been greatly em- 
barrassed by the recent exhibitions of 
poor college singing at our football games, 
Aggie has aOUgS in which we may al 
take pritle. Let's do them and the collegel 
justice. Let's do our practicing in private!

"Whether or not you believe in prohi- 
bition, we must stand back of it," saidl 
the Rev. E. B. Robinson of llolyoke inl 
his talk on prohibition at assembly last] 
Wednesday. Dr. Robinson has addressed! 
the college on several occasions before. [ 
but his talk last week was most confi 
tlential and impressive of all. 

"The question before Massachusetts,"! 
Dr. Robinson said, "is whether or notl 
we shall give the Federal (iovernment a| 
square deal. It was a disgrace to demix 
racy when two years ago the people oil 
this slate didn't vote for prohibition. Tliel 
state does not back up the Federal Govern I 
ment as a result. We are playing the parti 
of the yellow dog. The situation is tragic I

failure. What is there to do? The Quebec I 
system is the worst of '

"The danger of democracy is the fact I 
that so many people never think aboutl 
civic questions. They are simply swept] 
along by mob psychology. Get the facts! 
about prohibition. The only way to fight] 
prohibition is to fight it fairly and squarely 

"The saloon is the most cold-bloodeil 
thing to drag down civilization that l| 
have ever seen," Dr. Robinson said as he| 
went about to describe some of the! 
atrocities that are caused by the use oil 
intoxicating liquors, "When you work inl 
an industrial city and see tragedy upon| 
tragedy," he said, "you may have noj 
solution to offer, but you will feel that! 
you would do everything you possibly! 
could to relieve the conditions." He saidl 
that alcohol brings tragedy not only intol 
domestic life but that it effects politics. 

The man who builds a factory builds a 
temple; the man who works there also 
builds there; anil to each is due, not scorn

"I submit that having done as well as

Coolidge should Im- given a trial under 
conditions we hope will be better. I he 

induction of a new President means

the way of his re-election." These were 
the words of State Senator C.eorge D. 
Chamberlain of Springfield, in his Speech 
at assembly on "Why I Shall Vote for 
Calvin Coolidge." This was the first of 
a serial of talks by three different men, 
each of which is to give his reasons for

President," said Senator Chamberlain, 
"first because he is an honest man. That

an important consideration. 

"I was in theSl.ite House with Coolidge

President of the Senate, Lieutenant

an Opportunity not tO know him. but to

Absolute honesty, integrity and vision 
characterized him. 

"His preparation for his entrance into

An irresistible, well conditioned Aggie 
team swamped I be Noivviih eleven II 
at Northlicld, last Saturday. 

The game, teri/ed l>\ heipiint 

fumbles and even more plentiful penalties, 
was exceedingly interesting, la spin- ol 

the one sided score, because ol the mans 
bleaks, s|h-< t.u ulai ptoyi, and the sterling 
dcleiisive work of the M.A.C, line. The 
most startling play of the game OCCUTOfl 
in the final period when a Norwich punt, 
ticked from behind their goal, was partial 
ly blocked by Couhig; it wcnl high in 
the air and, as it tame down, (iustafson 

leaped (or it, batted it towarde the 

Norwich goal lane, retrieved it as il 
dis. ended and aided by Couhig's iulcr- 
leience dove a. loss I he line for Aggie's 

last touchdown. 

While at lirst the OUtCOOU Of thl game 
might have been in doubt, on account of 
thfl everpreseiit possibility of Rosenthal 
or Sherman, I he Norwich backtield Hashes, 
breaking loose, ihc rapid scoring Agales 
early dispensed any doubt of the ultimate 
result . 

The Inst tOUdldowa was made on the 
third play Ol the game. Jones kicked oil 
for MAC. and the boll was down on the 
twenty yard Hue. Capt. Rosenthal tried 
to penetrate the Aggie line but fumbled 
when tackled and Mobefg recovered. On 
the next play McGeoch went over for ■ 

touchdown. Jones lifted the ball over (he

line where I pass, Sullivan to Jones, 

netted ffteea yards. On the hrst ,,| a y of 

the second period McOeoch again crashed

play brought Norwich (loser to the M.A.C.

the ball on the Aggie twenty yard line 
when the < .ore men failed to make a hrsi

Plant Quarantine Will M ake Domestic 
Growing a Big Industry. 

New Publication 

at Dartmouth 

"The Tower", a new undergraduate 
periodical at Dartmouth, has made its 
appearance on the campus. The aim of 
the magazine is to stimulate among under- 
graduates thought and discussion on the 
important developments in politics, edu- 
cation, and literature. "The Tower" will 
nt— i contain discussions of drama and art, 
endeavoring to maintain a proper balance 
between its constructive suggestions and 
criticism of existing conditions. The 
publication will b« issued fifteen times 
during the college year. 

The Floriculture Deportment is doing 

work in the forcing of American-grown 
bulbs, comparing them with the Dutch- 
grown bulbs. The experiments have be. n 
occasioned by a Federal quarantine act 
placing permanent restrictions on the 
importation of bulbs from Holland, be- 
cause of the dangerous plant diseases 
which are Spread by infected foreign 
bulbs. After 1988 no narcissi can lie 
brought into this country. Other bulbs 
it is impossible to ini|>ort at the present 
time. These restrictions are of great 
significance, causing a complete revolu- 
tion of the bulb industry. Holland has 
long been recognized as the home of the 
spring-Howering bulbs, florists and seeds- 
men having always relied upon imported 
bulbs for their supply. This supply is 
about to be entirely cut off and these 
bulbs meat be prop a g a ted and grown in 

this country, a thing which has never 
before been done on a commercial scale, 

The depart men t here is taking an active- 
part in the Americanization of the bulb 
industry, working at present OH the forcing 
of domestic blubs. 

The Floriculture Club held its first 
meeting of the year last 'Thursday evening 
in French Hall. The following officers 
were elected: president, Donald F. Ross 
•25; vice president, S. L. Woodbury '25; 
secretary-treasurer, Raymond E. Smith

low '20, chairman, A. Wesley Jones '28, 
and Loren F. Sniffen '20; refreshment 
committee, Farl Hruorton "28, chairman, 
Roger binner '25 and Harold Thurlow '20. 

After the election of officers, plans were

Team C defeated the freshmen in ■ 
practice game on Tuesday last by the 
score of 7-0. After the first few minutes 
when team C scored on an over head 
attack the freshmen line held fast and 
team C could not advance. 

Capone, freshman quarter, was injured 
in the first few minutes of play and was 
forced to retire, his place being creditably 
filled by Reed who weighs only 118 lbs, 
Thompson, Charleston and Mahoney did 
good work in the backfield while Trull 
and Mulhern did the bulk of the work 
for the line. Fessenden '20 and Black '27 
in the line, with Gordon '20 in tin- back- 
field were the best bets for team I 

Team U won over the Two Years, 2d 0, 
fumbles preventing a higher score. The 
Two Veer eqned is .Icing its bit by helping 
to build uf) the varsity, a fact which 
probably is not appreciated by a majority 
of students.

Mountain Day 
With tfccMCOad Mountain 1 >ay bstod 
lls the question which is uppermost in 
„,;. mi „,lsof all is "Was it uioughof a 
surras to merit another?" fttdgWf from 
the Dtt»bef who the one last 
Tues«lavitNvasa.leei(le(l success. But it 
seems to be the general opinion that this 
year there was nothing to l»e .lone when 
tll( . ^ was reached hut to turn around 
;m ,l deaeead 1-ast year the main reason 
for s.uh i day was the dedication of the 

1U . W tire tower, but this year there was no 
such motive, an.l the time somewhat 
dragged at the summit. 

The good time which was enjoyed, with 
no particular objective except the 
of the mountain would seem to indicate 
that mOUgB interest will always be 

maajfetf to raata such ■ holiday fesaiDk 

as an annual event. But by M means 
everyone took this opportunity ol seeing 
the newly acp.ire.l college property, 
perhaps partially because- of other en- 
gagements, but principally because there 
was nothing but the climb to be antici- 
pated. II games, contests and many 
varied lines of sports could be planned 
and a regular program arranged, it would 
Hen that a perfect occasion would result. 
Of course it is an admirable time, when 
all are gathered at the top, to practice 
songs and cheers, but the outcome ol 
such an attempt this year showed that 
on Mountain Day everyone itemed to 
forget his college duties and ties, ami was 
,„„ to get the most which the day had to 


The fact that a great many Other 
.olleges, some neighbors of ours, have 
inaugurated Mountain Day into their 
curriculum is one of the many reasons 
why it should be an institution here and 
in another year it should be a feature ol 
the college year. 

It is not enough to be good; be good for 


With I'lesidential elections drawing 
,„..„-, and a healed contest assured, the 
lad cannot be stressed too much thai 
all who are eligible should cast their 
ballot lor one of the candidates before the 
people. In tW) elections four years ago 
the lack of interest shown indicated that 
too many were contented to let a few go 
to the polls, and then sit back and criticize 
the- result of this meager balloting. 

It is the aim of those most interested in 
this coming event to have every voter who 
,an possibly do so make public, through 

the polls, his choice for the presidency, m 

onlei that the entire country may be 
aroused to the importance of this election, 
and to each voters vital concern in its 
outcome. A man who feels that his vote 
is not worth the trouble it recpiircs to be 
cast, is only intimating that he is not 
worthy of being a registered voter, and 
that he should not be allowed that 

I'erhaps in a great many cases people 
reserve their choice through lack of 
knowledge of the candidates in cpiestion, 
but every attempt is being made this year 
to inform every registered individual as to 
tin- merits of the offerings of the three 
parties, and no one should have an excuse 
for withholding his ballot on this account. 
A measure which will aid most college 
men and women is the absentee ballot, by 
means of which one may cast his or her 
ballot in their respective towns or cities, 
,i,„,n application for such a ballot. It is 
the duty of every person qualified by law 
to cast a ballot at the coming elections, 
to prove- his or her interest in this affair, 
if not to pledge their loyalty to their

On to W. P. I. 

The football team carried the old Aggie 
fight to Norwich last Saturday and re- 
turned a winner by an unquestionable 
margin. In other words they scored on 
their opponents almost at will, showing 
that they were superior in every respect. 
There are about five hundred men on 
this campu* who wish they could have 
been at Nortbtield to glory in their team's 
decisive victory. But Northhcld was a 
long journey from Amherst, as the few 
who made it can say, but Worcester is 
within easy "bumming" distance, and 
every indication is that any Aggie man 
at W.P.I, after the game this Saturday 
will have something to shout about. 

There will be a large number of alumni 
at this game, and a splendid showing can 
be made if all who can do so with a clear 
co n s ci e nc e beat their way to the Heart 
of the Commonwealth to support the 
team which has already won two out of 

And a word to those who do go. Be 
sure and t .ike- a musical ear, and plenty 
of gejod wind, so that when a SOBf is in 
order, a song will be sung, and when 
cheers are- appropriate there will be 
cheering. And when you have- decided 
to take in the Worcester I'olytech game, 
begin to make up your mind about Tufts 
at Medfonl. 

Accounts of the lives of thirty-seven 
residents of the town of Amherst are 
found in the newest edition of "Who's 
Who in America" published in July ol 
this year. Of tfceaj thirty seven, fourteen 
are members of the M.A.C. faculty and 
ex|>criiiient station staff.

We have now had the first talk on "My 
Note, and How 1 Get That Way". 

Cnfortunately, the afternoon atmos- 
phere being SOporittC, we missed a little 
of the speech and couldn't keep our usual 
iron mental clutch on the unity, coherence, 
and emphasis, but in general the theme- 
war, "I shall vote for Calvin Coolidge 
because he is an honest man". 

Hoy, page Diogenes! Another vote for 
the- Republicans. 

And ineidently, who told the weather 
man about "Keeping Cool for Coolidge"? 
Because he's getting the ielea much too

The Game at Northfleld 
by Falter deCamp 
With a score of 41-0, continually using 
the Australian crawl, the Aggie team 
rushed the puck over the line for numerous 
baskets and scored four touchelowns and 
a home run. With deuces wild and no 
holds barred, the 1-earless Larnu-rs made 
a complete circuit of the liases, and con- 
tinually checking back, made nineteen 
first clowns and scored Mah-Jongg. 

In an interview with the coach, nothing 
could be learned concerning the above. 


Do you rememlier the answer to "Win 
is a mouse when it spins?" which is "The 
higher the fewer."? 

That applies to Mount Toby quite as 
well. The first few miles are easy. Then 
you sit down and alibi gaily, "Oh no, not 
a bit tired. Just looking at this heavenly 


Bunk! Then another climb up an in- 
clined plane that even a physics prof 
couldn't subdue, and then again "Let's 
stop and look at this lovely tree". 
Sure. /></v tree. More applesauce. 
Finally the top and the fire for the in- 
cineration of hot dogs, and cider (How 
much did you get?) and another view— a 
real one this time. 

And then trying to bum a ride home. 
And not getting it. And nothing done 
for the next day. But why worry? Let's 
have a Mountain Day every month!

The average undisciplined youth on 
American campuses today has satisfactory 
ability and commendable aspirations. But 
he is often tripped by the imp of un- 
met hodical study or lured to ruin by the 
siren of extra-e urricular activity. With an 
eye toward increasing the college student's 
efficiency, an advisor in the University of 
West Virginia proposes a fifty-four hour 
week program. 

The highly complex social life that 
obtains in most colleges and universities 
is surely desirable. It is the duty of the 
administration to encourage every club, 
society and fraternity with a worthy 
purpose that springs into being. Here 
young men anel women learn to be sociable 
and here a paramount need of the day- 
more and better social, business and 
professional leaders—will in a large 
measure be satisfied. But without some- 
safe direction, these outside interests, like 
pet colts ridden by doting young women, 
run away with their devotees. 

It is costing somebody,— your parents, 
the state, yourselves, perhaps all three — 
a considerable sum of money to keep you 
here and provide you with adequate 
educational advantages. This represents 
an investment, and every investor expects 
some reasonable return from his money. 
In compensation for what you receive, 
the least ye>u can return to your parents 
is a good record, to the state good citizen- 
ship, to yourself the capacity to exert 
more |x>wcr and influence. Whether you 
enter business, industry or the professions, 
you are going to have to give a just day's 
work, perhaps something more, if you 
expect to prove your servicer, of extra- 
ordinary worth to some person or cor- 
poration. The time to learn how to do 
that is today and every other of the 
some eight hundred days you spend in 
earning a college degree. Therefore the 
fifty-four hour week scheme is offered. It 
may sound like joining the union, yet it 
is somewhat more strenuous than # union 
hours because it is intended to prepare for 
a supposedly more responsible post than 
that of an ordinary tradesman. 

Your working week according to the 
fifty-four hour week plan begins at eight 
o'clock Monday morning. You will be 
expected to work industriously until 
twelve o'clock preparing lessons, attend- 
ing lectures or working in the laboratory. 
Take an hour out for lunch anil resume 
duty,— reciting, studying, doing experi- 
ments or taking field trips,— at one o'clock. 
Keep this up faithfully till five. From five 
till seven-thirty take some recreation and 
eat dinner. Then return to one of your 
customary tasks not later than eight 
o'clock, preferably at seven-thirty. Stop 
studying at ten o'clock and be in bed at 
ten-thirty. Sleep eight hours, getting up 
at six-thirty or seven, and begin duty 
again at eight in the morning. This 
scheme calls for ten hours of serious appli- 
cation each of five days of the week. 
When Saturday rolls around, work from 
eight until twelve and then stop. And 
stopping means to stop as far as routine 
college study is concerned. From Saturday 
noon, all days Sunday, to Monday at 
eight in the morning— at least sixteen 
hours do something different. That is 
your safety-valve as Dr. Oliver Wendell 
Holmes once told the youthful Edward 


With full academic credit for extra- 
curricular activities, this scheme ought 
to work. This arrangement not only 
provides a generous week-end, but it 
allows a liberal early evening margin for 
sport, the gymnasium, a hike, the movies, 
a club meeting and so on. It gives you 
all the time you need for the legitimate 
concomitants of serious work in college. 


The facts and comments in the new. 
papers and periodicals concerning Pre - 
dent Coolidge lead me to wonder whci 
he is really the man we have been told I I 
is. Denby and Fall were shown to haul 
violated the federal law when it becanJ 
known that they had aided Doheny i r l 
stealing the Navy's oil lands. Daugherhl 
was shown to have been involved wits] 
illegal liquor withdrawals and illegal fight 
picture showings by too many difTen i 
witnesses for there to be any reasonable! 
doubt as to his guilt. Yet it took montlJ 
for public opinion to force Coolidge tn| 
dismiss these corrupt cabinet memlx-r- 
And when he did "part" with them 
was with regret. Is a man who values tlul 
friendship of corrupt politicians the kin 
of a man we want for President? Would 
not a real President have dismissed tin- 
men as soon as the facts became knowi 
and superseded them with men who havtl 
the interests of the people at heart? 

Coolidge favored the Mellon tax bil 
which cut the income tax for the profiteer- 
nearly in half and reduced the tax on] 
small incomes only about 10% thai 
shifting the burden of taxesonto the people i 
least able to bear it. This was because the 
tax burden on the people of the Unite! 
States must be materially lightened 
Whom does Coolidge regard as thel 
"people"? Evidently not you and me. 

Coolidge stands for economy, yet he 
approves a large appropriation for the 
Army and Navy when Secretary Hughes 
states there is no nation with whom w 
may fear a war in the near future. Atl 
the same time he vetoes the measure which! 
would increase the pay of postal to thel 
wage set by the U. S. Department si 
Labor as the minimum for decency! I- 
this the type of economy you favor? Amil 
the Post Office more than pays expense - 
Coolidge has the interests of th 
"people" at heart and believes a high] 
tariff is needed to protect them. Sincel 
July he has had the report of the Tarifil 
Commission Iwfore him showing that wej 
pay 2 cents a pound clear profit into thel 
pockets of the Sugar Trusts because oil 
the tariff. The President has the power 
to reduce the tariff sufficiently to stopl 
this plundering and yet he allows it tol 
go without even a word of protest again- 
the outrage. One soon begins to wondc- 
what "people" it is whose iatCMStS Bee 
to 1m? protected by the tariff! 

When one sees Coolidge approve Seen 
tary Hughes' offer of the U. S. Navy toj 
help the New York banking intereM 
collect on their speculations in Centra 
America, one almost begins to believe he| 
is not included in Coolidge's "people". 

Now perhaps I am all wrong in my in 
terpretations. If I am I wish someone! 
would give us a more logical interpretatm- 
of these acts of the President.

When !"• was called to the higher office 
ob the death of Preaidenl Harding, he 
came to the next Cabinet meeting with i 
better knowledge of the Cabinal than 
am other Preaidenl had had. Thie was a 
preparation fortervieeoi the highest type. 
"He inherited many compltcationai He 
was to have ii" easy path- Them were 
accusations again** his Cabinet memben 
and against his party leaders. There wm 
., determined effort <>n the part of Coagreai 
to embarraaa him. What did he do? He 
carried himaeli with dignity, compoaure, 
kindness; no anger, no disgust when a 
might have been Justified. It was charged 
that he must have known the doings of 
his Cabinet members. Those who know 

him know that he WM careful to judge. 

He would not pass judgment until he 
knew all of the facts. 

"Calvin Coolidge won the reaped and 

confidence of the people regardless d

the South among the Democratic stales. 
He has their confidence because they leel 
that he is an hottest man. It has been

a shrewd politician. He is a party man. 
He has a 141 eat admiration and a great 

faith in the Republican party. He lias 
had the courage to stand in the face oi 

evidence that the party leaders had 
broken faith. 

"At the adjournment of Congress the 
things Calvin Coolidge had stood for 
were in general the things the people had 
wanted. He was in favor of tax reduction. 
He was Opposed to the bonus. He said 
that the condition of the country was such 
that we had no right to raise excessive 
taxes for the benefit of able-bodied 
veteran-. He would go the limit for those 
who were handicapped. His attitude 
toward the farmers was right. The wheat 
farmers of the northwest wanted to pass 
special legislation in their favor. Coolidge 
said, "No, that is not what the Govern- 
ment is tor" He was against the recog- 
nition of blocks. What he did do was to 
advocate diversified farming as the 


"He tlid the best he could in spite of 
dements to defeat his purpose. I submit 
that having done as well as he did under 
trying conditions, he should be given a 
trial under conditions that we hope will

dent means business embarrassment. 

There is nothing against President Cool.

booted it out to iiiidticld. An exchange ol 
punts followed, with "Buddy" so com- 
pletely outclassing the Norwich kicker 

that the Agates wire again placed within 
storing distance. A series of line plunges 
and oil tackle plays brought the ball to 
the thirty yard line where an attempted 
field goal failed. Another onslaught by 
the Aggie "Line Crashers", following a 
short Norwich kick, advanced the ball to 
the one-yard line where the Cadets re- 
covered a fumble, but their kicker made 
an abysmal failure of his punt and Aggie 
ha<l the ball on the five yard line. Hilyard 
scored in two plunges. The half ended 
with the store 21 to (I. "Larry" June-

Norwich started the second half with 
a spread formation and an end-running 
and forwartl passing game which was 
-mothered by the Aggie line ami Stopped 
by Couhig when he intercepted a pass on 
the 40 yard Itttf. "Red" Sullivan tore 

through tackle for 2t) yards, the longest 

run made dttrfng the game, and McCeoch 
smashed through the line for 10 more on 
the IdUowing play; then the desperate 
Norwich line tightened and the Agate- 
lost the ball on downs only to recover it 
again when the Cadets fumbled. A pass, 
"Red" to McCeoch, followed by a line 
plunge by "Mac" was rcspon-iblc for the 

fourth MAC. touchdown. 

The final periotl Opened aiispieuously 

for M.A.C. but a 15-yard penalty forced 

them to try another placement. It failed, 

and after an exchange of punts and a 

forward pass, Jones swelled the Aggie 

-core by dropping over a ii! yard place 

kick. The next store came when ( '.ustafson 

pulled his basket-ball act. "l.arry" again 

booted the goal after touchdown. The 

l.i-t three points came as the result ot a

while the ball was in the air the final 

whi-tle blew. Moberg made a fair catch 

and the M.A.C. team was given the 

privilege of attempting a so-called kick 

alter fair catch. Jones lifted it between 

the uprights. Sullivan's work featured the 

M.A.C. offense; hi- passes and off-tackle 

slants paving the way to several scons. 

On the defense the line proved adamant. 

they smeared Rosenthal before he had 

an opportunity to utilize his running 

ability. Molter, the Norwich tackle and 

Crowley, center, were the two most 

capable men on the Cadet line.

A Scientific System of 

ALL true progress comes through gradual develop- 
ment. Compare the automobiles, telephone 
or threshing machines of twenty-five years ago with 
the highly efficient product of today. Better work 
and longer life for each machine has resulted in every 
case from intelligent, consistent development. 

The development of any machine depends: first, 
upon the ideals and ability of the designers and 
builders and, second, upon the data available and 
the method of its use. This Company is exception- 
ally fortunate in both these respects. Our engineers 
are admittedly competent and resourceful. They 
have devised a system for securing accurate, definite 
information about the operation of Case machines 
under the infinite variety of conditions met in ex- 
tensive field work. 

As it comes in, this information is classified, tabu- 
lated and charted every month. It is studied care- 
fully for any indication of desirable improvements 
in design, material or construction. This is the 
scientific system of development incorporated in the 
Case Engineering Code that has carried Case prod- 
ucts forward to leadership in usefulness and econ-

The necessity of a new |>olitical part\ 
and the aims of the LaFollette-Wheeler 
progressive movement were propounded 
at assembly by Mr Roland A. C.ibson of 
Dartmouth, in his talk on "Why I shall

They made the high tariff. The tariff has 
caused a loss of over three millions to 
the American people, half of which has

Mr. C.ibson said that Senator LaFollette 
was opposed to the issue of Liberty Bonds 
because they would inflate the currency 
at the expense of the people and advocated 
making the capitalists pay for the war as 
it went along. His opposition was over

by defeating the Worcester Tech harriers

The annual six- man ro|>e pull is 
scheduled to take place U-tween the halves 
of the Wesleyan game next Saturday 
afternoon, both the sophomore and the 
Ireshman classes have been practicing 
diligently for several weeks under the 
direction of upper, lassmen. Captain 
McVey of the sophomore class is confident 
of victory Ix-cause the class seems to be 
standing behind this contest better than 
it did last year, and the freshmen, too, 
hope to win the laurels. 

New England Contests Will Take 
Place on our Campus Soon. 

For the first time in the history of the 
college, the New Fmgland contests in 
fruit judging and packing are to be held

received from all the other New England 
states. It is expected that there will be 
[over 25 visiting contestants. More de- 
tailed plans will be announced later. 

llu- varsity fruit judging team is 
planning on entering the International 
I mil Judging Contest at Atlantic City on 
November 13. The Massachusetts team 
took first in the International in 1923 and 
1821. This speaks well for M.A.C. as the 
larger colleges of eastern United States

Collegian to Help in National Cam- 
paign for Student Figures. 

A day filled with interest will tome to an 
adequate c liniax during the Maroon Key 
Informal which will begin immediately 
after the Wesleyan game next Saturday. 
The demand for tickets is unusually great, 
so late comers are advised to sec anv 
ineml>er of the Key as soon as ( x»ssible. 

One of the new features of this affair 
is the addition of two pieces to "Ked" 
Parker's orchestra. "Red" has sec u red 
the services of a saxophone player and 
another trumpeter from Amherst. The 
■Upper will be Al Bias's best. The fact 
that many of the Wesleyan men including 
members of their squad are expected to 
attend is considered by the Maroon Key 
as an attractive feature. This affair is at 
a unique time because it will be the first 
time in eighteen years that the Wesleyan 
team has played the Mass. Aggie eleven 
in Amherst. The sophomore society is 
working hard to make this informal a 
success in every way. 

'The Massachusetts Aggie football It 
overwhelmingly defeated the Woreei 
Polytcch team at Worcestei last Saturt 
by a score of .71 to 1,'i. 

The game seemed to be divided into 
two distinct |>arts. In the fust hall the 
Boynton Hill eleven had possession ol 
the' ball just twice; ami neither lime did 
they gain a fust down. Once in the In si 
quarter a fumble gave Worcester the 
ball, but the visitors threw the offensive 
backs for losses so that they were forced 
to kick. In the second period the home 
team again gained |H>ssession of the pig 
skin through penalties but again they were 
forced to kick. During these two period 
the ( •oreman repeatedly used an off-tackle 
play which the Rod ami < .rav team seemed 
unable to check. Nothing but straight 
football was used timing the entire halt. 
McGaoch and Sullivan were both rsapOHr 
sihle for long gains through the line. 
Each man carried the pigskin over tin- 
Worcester goal line three times. Also, 
Larry Jones added his bit lo the score bv 
Uniting lour goals out of six chances at 
the cross bat. 

In the second hall the WottesUi 
rooters were given more encouragement 
It was in the third quarter thai the 
Worcester team first scored against an 

Aggie team nanmwhal weakened by 

substitutions. Both of the touchdowns 
weie made by Guitli the fast W.P.I, 
fullback, ami lioth were I lie direct result 
of long forwartl passes bv Converse who 
was Worcester's most dangerous man. 
Irom the start of the third period the 
Fngineers showed more promise of MM 
ing. Jones kicked off to the Wort ester 
goal line where Converse MOOped up the 
hall and raced it back to the middle of 
the field. After !>cing forced to punt, 
Worcester regained possession of the ball 
because of penalties and a fumble on the 
Aggie five-yard line. It was al this time 
that Converse and Guidi tlid their stuff 
for the first Wort ester score, Guidi pulling 
down a |>erfect |wss from Converse while 
behind the Aggie goal. At the In-ginning 
of the last quarter the Maroon and White 
gridmen started another mirth down the 
held, the ball being tarried much of the 
time by Hilyard, who finally in a line buck 
carried it over for another touchdown. 
Then followed a tightening of the Won cs

Basil Wood Appointed Librarian on Retirement of Dr. Green. 

Mr. Basil Boise Wood arrived here last 
week to familiarize himself with the 
college library, of which he will take 
charge about November 12. Mr. Wood is 
a native of Wisconsin and a graduate of 
Brown I'niversity, class of 1905. He 
succeeds Dr. Henry S. Green who has 
been librarian here since 1921 and who 
has now reached the retirement age. 

Mr. Wood was library assistant at the 
John.Crerar Library in Chicago in 1911. 
His succeeding library work is as follows: 
reference assistant, Berkshire Athanaeum, 
Pittsfield, 1911-'12; reference assistant,

followed Miss Hall, holding the office 
until September 1921, when he resigned 
to Income librarian at the Jones Library 
here in Amherst. Dr. Henry S. Green 
took the place of Charles R. Green. 

All material for the first issue of the 
Squib has gone to press and it is expected 
that the magazine will be ready for 
distribution by the first of November. 
It is to be a Frosh number, and much ol

Over 250 lovers of the beautiful in 

laadacape architecture last Friday evening 

enjoyetl one of the best lectures on tin- 
subject ever given in Amherst. The 
speaker was Robert M. Cram of Boston, 

one of the ton-most landscape architects 

in New England, who came as the guest 

of the Landscape Club. 

"Fnglish (.aniens of the Kith Century" 
was his topic , and he drew a large aiidicm e 
of Aggie. Mount Holyoke and Smith 
students, as well as many townspeople. 

The Laadacape Club of Smith College 
was the guest ol our Landscape Club at 

the meeting. Mr. Cram, who is at present 
practicing in Boston, is a gradu ite ol 

Harvard and won the degree of master ol 

landscape gardening there. The pictures 
which he used to illustrate his talk, he took 
in Fngland during his summer vacation. 
The l.iimiere slides, which project the 
views on a sheet rubber screen laced with 
linen, reproduced the varied colors ol 
many Howers and MCttei almost perfectly. 
In one view of an Fnglish landscape the 
blue ha/.e of the atmosphere, whit h Mr. 
(ram said was typical of Fngland, was 

particularly realistic 

The Fnglish Gardens were referred 

to by Mr. Cram as being most interesting 
to us because they are best adapted to 
our climate ami to our |>ocketbooks. The 
pictures besides being very Ix-autilul 
were widely varied, the scenes ranging 
from little cottage gardens to old Fnglish 
manors with yew hedges two or three 
hundred years old.

|, lr( that few if any persons are 

advantage of the opportunity to 
question assembly speakers alter they 
have given their talks on Thursday slter- 

)C) „s is a deplorable one. Alter such a 
as was heard last week, are there 

who either fed strongly that the 

with a 







speaker has the wrong 
W Otlld like to take the Other s.d, 
there nunc who leel that the shaker has 
the right idea, and would like more ... 
formation on tin- subject. 

Most of the spcakcis, especially the 

last two dealing with candidates for the 

coming presidential election, no doubt 
come here feeling thst they are addressing 

a group* which their particular political 
faith is upheld by not one hundred per 

cent, perhaps not fifty per cent, and they 

arc prepared to present individual argu 

mints in an endeSVOf to create a new 
thought at least, if not to win over new 


In nearly every assembly this year 

President lewis has invited a forum 
either during the period or after it. This 
has been the case because so many ol the 
talks have l.een upon debatable subjects. 

And the oi>cn forum in assembly is only 

,„„. manifestation of the fact that this 

college upholds free thinking and individ- 
ual argumentation. 

Perhaps no more remain because of 
the lateness of the hour, but it would 
require only a very few minutes lor am 
difficulties to lie cleared up which resulted 
in the minds of some, from the talk of the 
alt ci noon. And by not having any men 
Or women enter this proffered discu s si o n , 
the student body is showing that it either 
has been sleeping and missed the whole 
address, or it has absorbed it to so great 
an extent that further discussion would be 


So let us prove to the speakers who 
come in the future and who offer their 
services at an Open forum that Aggie men 
arc either wholeheartedly with them, or 
else they are not in sympathy with their 
views and wish to debate the matter 
further. Thus far there has been ample 
opportunity for cither view, and the next 
one also promises main 


The lack of attention given to President 

Lewis iii last Thursday's assembly was 
something which has not occurred to 
such a degree lor a long time, and should 

!„• boked to more closely in the future. 

(),„■ must remember that even a quiet 
talk with one's neighbor adds so much 
more to the general din. that in no time 
at all the auditorium is tilled 
babble which entirely drowns out 
voice which might issue from the platlor.n. 
The fact that one notice of interest to 

all should be received with such an out- 
burst of chattering as was the case last 

week is one that deserves the personal 
attention of every member of the student 
body. Outbursts of laughter when they 
express the goodfcllowship or backing of 
the audience are not strictly out of place, 
hut when every man turns to the one next 
to him and discusses a point in which he 
is vitally concerned, then the inattention 
is outwardly manifested as disrespect, 
which is a difficult situation to face from 
a platform. 

We realize that this matter was merely 
the result of thoughtlessness on the part 

of the individuals, and hope that by merely 

mentioning it. such nonsense will cease. 

If our dear old friend Mr. (one will 
pardon us: 

"Every day, in every way, 
It's getting colder and colder." 
Hut maybe you'd noticed that your- 


Our political education is progressing. 

Telling an agricultural college that 
LaFollette is "the farmers' friend" is 
good business and should harvest (you 
note how agricultural we are?) a few stray 
votes for the gentleman in question. 

Hut why, why, in the name of Cicero, 
Demosthenes, and Fighting Hob himself,

It is only a matter of a little more than 
a Week when we shall entertain the foot- 
ball team and student body from the 
other end of the town. And it is scarcely 

too early to begin to co nsi der our attitude 

toward our rivals, yet our visitors. The 
game this year will be, in all probability, 
all that any Aggie or Amherst man could 
hope for. and there is assured a contest 
that will be tilled with exciting moments 
from start to finish. 

We find ourselves confronted with a 
Unique situation in this struggle. Two 
Colleges of different aims in the same small 
town, and practically equal in size, battling 

for the supr ema cy of the occasion. For 

the benefit of those who will watch this 
annual clash for the first time, we will 
say that it is a difficult matter to retain 
one's serl-res|>ccl and alw.ivs show the 
best of s|H»rting spirit during the most 

exciting momenta Hut in recent years, 


The manv four-year students who pass 
regularly to and from the dining hall 
Cannot help observing the nuisance which 
has occasioned this article. As the four- 
year student approaches the dining hall, 
as well as when he leaves, he observes a 
group of from fifteen to twenty-five 
Two Year students, nearly all freshmen, 
presenting a Spectacle much more appro- 
priately associated with the entrance to a 
bowling alley or a cigar shop than with 
the front entrace of a college dining hall. 
They are there at every meal hour; some 
are "chewing the rag" in groups which 
OCCUpy the entire width of the walk; 
others, the majority, are engaged in 
watching and passing remarks about 
those passing by on the walk approaching 
the .lining hall on the east. As a student 
attempts to reach the front door, or as he 
is leaving, he is obliged either to leave the 
walk and take to the lawn or to elbow his 
way through the crowd of loiterers. 

The nuisance is a source of continual 
annoyance to the many students as well 
a> faculty members and others who are 
entitled to an unobstructed entrance to 
the dining hall. The writer feels certain 
that the four-year uppcrclassmen who rule 
that their freshmen shall pass them in 
single file would not tolerate such an 
annoyance by Four Year freshmen. Yet, 
because the offenders arc Two Year men, 
the nuisance (wrsists. The continual 
personal inconvenience, however, is not 
the main reason why other students should 


It is a disgrace to the many co-eds who 
must pass before this staring mob of rude 
and ill-mannered men, and must tolerate 
being the subjects of remarks which would 
be insulting to any sclf-res|>ecting young 
lady. It is noticeable that the mob is 
concentrated on the east side of the 
front door, and after dinners and on Satur- 
days and Sundays it even extends half 
way down the eastern walk. If the passer- 
by finds this loitering herd annoying, he 
may well imagine the indignation which 
must be felt by the co-eds. 

An obvious reason for complaining at 
this thoughtless and unbecoming conduct 
of the Two Year freshmen is that it is a 

blot upon the appearance of our campus, 

inevitably leaving M the minds of visitors 
from other colleges an undesirable im- 
pression of our college life. What resec- 
table man Would care to be classed with 
this mob? (It is gratifying to note that 
the four-year man is quite exempt from 
this criticism.) Yet, the visitor knows no 

distinction. It is such spe ct a c l es as this 

which make visitors from other colleges 
lay particular emphasis on the "agricul- 
tural" in MAC.

The osmotic education. Absolutely! 
All by osmosis. On retiring, the osmotic 
student would simply select the book to 
be assimilated, and use it for a pillow. 
Painless education while you sleep! 
Knowledge slowly filters from page to 
brain and the student wakes with a good 
comprehensive knowledge of his subject. 
On reaching the exam room, he looks at 
the questions, lays his head on the blank 
book and sleeps for two hours. Then he 
wakes, and the knowledge will "have 
osmosed outward, and the book will be 
full. Result: a perfect exam.

Hy heresy is meant every he re s y . Should 

the advocacy of revolution by aasasinntion 

of polygamy, of Ku Klux Klanism, of 

pacifism whatever it is you most object 

to— should that heresy be heard? El 
eluding such things as the circulation of 
Obscene literature for profit, which is not 
heresy but commercial vice, and granting 
that there are children's nurseries and a 
few other places where it may not In- 
expedient that heresy be voiced, the cen- 
tral question worth thinking about is— 
should the ordinary avenues of public 
discussion of public questions be kept 
open for the agitation of minority, un- 
popular and possibly subversive views? 

Let us consider it from the standpoint 
of social need. Two reasons then emerge 
for keeping the avenues open: first, 
society's interest in the discovery and 
spreatl of the truth; second, the social 

advantage of progress by law and order. 

In the Middle Ages, the Church, 
believing that the essential truth had 
been once for all delivered to the saints, 
conceived her duty to be the keeping of 
that heritage intact. Thus the Spanish 
Inquisition was instituted. The most 
prominent and trusted leaders in both 
Catholic and Protestant circles approved 
persecution of heresy. It is a sad story, 
but ■adder still would be our failure to 
learn from it. Shall we, for instance, 
allow the modern state to be the |H-rsc- 
CUtor in our day with its dogma of patrio- 

Of course, not every heresy is truth. 
And truth itself is many sided. How then 
shall we separate false heresies from the 
truth? There is only one safe way let 
the heresy, whatever it is, be heard. If 
we want to grow in the knowledge of the 
truth, then we must have free trade in 
ideas with no protective tariff for our own 
|Mt theories. The very things we are 
most sure of |>erhaps seed the testing of 
criticism by opposed ideas. Above all it 
is accessary to keep force ami repression 
away from the argument. For in every 
dispute the side of the truth has the 
natural advantage of having with it, 
and sooner or later facts tend to be heard. 
The earth goes around the sun as stated 
by C.alileo. Hut as soon as force or the 
decision not to print or not to hear is 
employed, then truth tends to lose its 

Now, besides its need for truth, organ- 
ized society needs stability. Many people 
suptx>se that it is therefore necessary, on 
(Kiasion, to keep order ami safeguard 
institutions by s u p pre ss ing agitators. 
Agitator is the modern name for heretic. 
Hut this is exactly the wrong method for 
gaining a right end. Our government is 
based M the agreement, both tacit and 
implied, that the minority shall always 
have the rights of free speech, of free press 
and of free agitation in order that the 
minority may convert itself, if possible, 
into a majority. Secret meetings, con- 
spiracies and finally force result if these 
rights are denied. Any attempt to inter- 
fere with the rights of free speech and of 
free press is a blow at the very foundations 
of our government. 

What are the limits where legitimate 
free speech becomes unwarrantable li- 
cense? John Stuart Mill gives us an 
answer. "Strange it is that men should 
admit the validity of the arguments for 
free discussion, but object to their being 
pushed to an extreme, not seeing that 
unless the reasons are good for an extreme 
case, they are not good for any case. 
Strange that they should imagine that 
they are not assuming infallibility, when 
they acknowledge that there should be 
free discussion on all subjects which can 
possibly be doubtful, but think that some 
particular principle or doctrine should be 

forbidden to be questioned because it is 

so certain: that is because they are cer- 
tain that it is certain. To call any propo- 
sition certain, while there is anyone who 
would deny its certainty if permitted, 
but who is not permitted, is to assume that 
we ourselves, and those who agree with us, 
are the judges of certainty, and judges 
without hearing the other side."

Several representatives of the college 
are included on the committees of the 
Amherst Post of the American Legion in 
connection with the musical comedy 
"Bimbo," which the Post is presenting in 
the Town Hall on October 127 and 28. 
They are: Knos J. Montague and II. N. 
Worthley on the general committee; 
Clark Thayer and Max Abell on program; 
M. N. Worthley and Hoy D, Harris on 
talent; Mr. Worthley and (lark Thayer 
on music; and Prank Cronk, Bead ushci. 

To the Editor of the Cousgum: 

The source of the trouble orginated 0U1 
of the fact that the police had to organi/. 
to endeavor to sec lire a living wage am! 
humane working conditions. They formed 
a union and affiliated with the A. F. of I. 
to secure these ends. I'olice Commissioner 
Curtis, directly responsible to C.ovenior 
Coolidgc alone, was opposed to such action 
on their part and forbade the men to 
join or belong to organization outside tin 
department. He then ordered III of flu 
police before him for trial. Most of these 
men wire officers of the union. 

Immediately Mayor Peters appointed 
a Citizens' Committee of .14 prOSpsrOiM 
Boston business men, headed by tin 
banker, James J. Storrow, to investigate 
and look out for the interests of the tit \ 
They took testimony from the men ami 
were "shocked and humiliated" that Mich 
conditions prevailed in Hoston. By 

September -. I0W the Committee reached 

a settlement satisfactory to Commissioner 
Curtis antl the men, who were "to give up 
their charter in the A. F. of I., and obtain 
ln-tter working conditions." 

September .'ird, the Citizens Committee 
realizing that trouble would result if the 
nun on trial wire fired, tried to ic.h! 
Curtis to have him |>osti>onc his decision 
but his counsel, Herbert Parker (cor 
poration lawyer), refused to allow tin 

delivery of the Committee's letter to 

Curtis, who announced his decision would 
Ik- read the next morning. The Commit! it 

felt that the d e cis io n would lend tn u 

ensteeBM strike ami tried to get Gov, 
Coolidgc to have Curtis |>ost|>one hi- 
decision. But Coolidgc refused to act to 
avoid the strike. Finally a counsel for 
the pnNeeUBSa prevailed on Curtis tC 
|M)st|>one his decision until Monday 
September 8th. 

On SeptemlKT (ith a settlement satis- 
factory to the men, whereby they volun- 
tarily gave up their A. F. of L. charter 
was submitted to Curtis, who failed to act 
All day Sunday the Governor could not I" 
found, when his action was neetled to 
avoid the strike. Coolidgt evaded action'. 
Monday morning, September 8, Curtis 
announced his decision, "firing" the nine- 
teen men. If he had only been willing to 
accept the settlement satsifactory to tin- 
men, who would give up their A. F. of L 
charter, this "firing" would not have bees 
necessary. This action on the part of 
Curtis, Coolidge's subordinate, made an 
avoidable strike inevitable. That after- 
noon the men voted to strike in loyalu 
to their officers who were no more guilty 
than the others on the force. Monday 
night the Citizens' Committee finally 
found Coolidge and tried to get him i 
approve the settlement antl thus avoid 
the strike. Yet Coolidge failed to act to 
avoid the strike. He did nothing! 

The people of Boston and the policemen 
themselves believed that in the event of a 
strike, order would l>e maintained becaiix 
500 volunteers had been trained by police 
captains, 200 able-bodied retiretl poliu 
were ready and 100 regulars were ready 
for duty. The police did not strike until 
the state authorities had reassured tin i 
order could be maintained without them 
Tuesday morning, September 9, t lu- 
men having voted to strike at 5.45 p. in 
Mayor Peters appealed to Coolidge to 
take action on the settlement and StiB 
avoid the strike. Coolidge replied, "/ en 
unable to discover any action I can take. 
(All he needed to do was to remove Curti- 
and accept the settlement!) 

At 0.411 the police "walked-out", CO* 
lideitt the volunteers would at once tab 
their places. But Curtis did not call on! 
t he volunteers! During that night nothing 
was done to suppress the disorder which 
began immediately. The so-called "loyal- 
police" were held in the barracks ami tl" 
volunteers were not called out, though 

ready. Coolidge did nothing to quief 

disorder. He could not be reachedl 

Wednesday, Mayor Peters called <>u

A mass meeting, at which the excite 
incut became so great that a student 
strike almost resulted, was held October 
11 when the undergraduates of Mercer 

University (Macon, Geonou) discovered 

that the professor of biology of that 
institution, Dr. lox, who in his class 
rooms had explained the theories of 
evolution, had been asketl to resign. 
Resolutions were immediately jKissetl by 
the student body expressing their appreci- 
ation of Dr. Fox and asking the Executive 
Committee of the Board of Trustees to 
reconsider their action. 

The action of the trustees, who are 
sleeted by the Georgia Baptist Conven- 
tion, was based on the grounds that "in 
a written expression of his views as to 
Christianity, he (Dr. Fox) shows that he 
is out of harmony with the principle on 
which WC hold the Christian church to 
be founded.. We grant to Dr. Fox," the 
resolution of the Board continues, "a

Prof. Cance was the speaker at the 

last meeting ol the Liberal Club, held an 
Wednesday, October 16, in upper Memori- 
al Hall. In his talk, which was on "The 
Need of a Third Political Party", he 
emphasized the point that, under our 
present l>i-party system of government, a 
third party would not prove lienefkial. A 
third party would in all cases hinder the 
passage of legislation on which a majority 
vote is required. "The present Demo- 
cratic and Republican parties," the 
■peaks* remarked, "are not entirely con- 
servative or liberal. They each contain 
within their ranks both elements. What 
ought to be done is for the radical and 
conservative groups of each party to 
unite and thus to form a real liberal party 
and a real conservative party." 

The speaker also gave a short account 
of LaFollette in his early career. He 
told how the leader of the progressive 
movement would work in co-operation 
with the universities when it was neces- 
sary to present to the people facts and 
data about political issues. 


The 1024 fall baseball season was 
brought to a conclusion on October 17 by 
a game between t*0 teams, A and B, 
picked by Coach Ball. McYey's two-base 
hit to left held, scoring Smiley, who 
bad been hit by a pitched ball, gave Team 
A a 1-0 victory over Team B, in a close 
and well -played game. 

All things considered, the season may 
well be described as S success. In spite 
of the fact that football at present 
dominates interest in athletics, much 
interest was shown for fall baseball, 
evidence of which is the fact that about 
sixty men reported, including some of 
the best material in college. The series 
of interclass games was won by the 
seniors, who finished the season with a 
clean record of five victories and no 
defeats. The sophomores were second, 
the juniors third, while the lowly fresh- 
men, without a single victory, brought up 
the rear. Following is the final standing 
of the teams: 

(Continued from Pafi* 1) 

ter defease and a series of Aggie penaltie 
which gave Worcester the ball on their I 
own twenty yard line. The next pl.t\ 
was a forward. Converse to Guidi, which! 

was completed when ( luiili reached up 

and snatched the ball from the air, broke | 
out of the crowd, and carried the ball 
eighty yards across the Aggie goal line 
This was certainly the most spectacular I 
play of the game. Soon after Jones kicked I 
off again, Couhig intercepted a pass which 
gave M.A.C. the ball in the home team - 
territory. Sullivan and Hilyard then 
marched the ball toward the goal lint 
once more, and Hilyard, anticipating the I 
final whistle by seconds, carried it ovcr| 
for Aggie's last score. 

The last three games that the Ma- 
Aggie team has played have been OSS] I 
matches. In these contests the team ha- 1 
displayed the l>est of condition, a powerful 
offensive and defensive machine, and l] 
thorough understanding of the fundamen- 
tals of football. The next game on tht 
schedule is with a stronger opponent 
Wesleyan. It remains to be seen whet her | 
these qualities will show up equally wel 
against a more powerful aggregation.

crews of Brown and Harvard in the inter

This relic comes from the collection of the

The informal after the Wesleyan 
game, the first one to be held under tht 
auspices of the Maroon Key, proved a 
decided muSSS It was unique in that 
it had as guests over fifteen Wesleyan 
men from the cross-country and football 


The hall was attractively lighted with 
maroon and ansbsr bulbs and the illum- 
inated insignia of the Maroon Key OCCtt- 
pied the center of the hall. "Red" 
Parker's Serenaders, including "Red" 
himself, Bob Woodworth, Eddie Haertl, 
Farl Breckenridge, Gordon Kyle, and 
Nugent from the Lord Jeff Serenade. s, 
furnished the music. Supper was served 
at 0. 1 5 by a local caterer. 


"Kiel" Core's football team faces the 
toughest game of the- season when they 
meet the Amherst eleven on Alumni field 
ne-xt Sal unlay. The Aggie line is ad 
mittcdly su|H-rior to the Amhetsi forwards 
but the Purple ami White bw kln-ld has 
been doing W UOd ers for its team this 
season. Drew and Captain Hill are big, 
last, aggressive players and will probably 
occasion the Aggie- forwards much con 

earn. Drew is an especially dangerous 

man on the receiving end of a forward 

i,,,ss. It is his shinty to search a pass 

from the air whic h will probablv < oiistitute 
the greatest threat against the Agates. 
Drew is the only triple threat OS eiilin 
team but the injury which he icceiviel 
last Saturday may prove- somewhat of a 

handicap Hill b ;• k'** 1 defensive back 

and a line plunger of some merit I. til he 
meets his equal in M< i ieodl who also has 
a penchant for end runs. Hilyard and 
Nichols are both hard hilling backs and 
Sullivan knows no pier on tlie Ainlirrsi 
learn OS taikle slanls. Gustsfsoo'l 

defensive work and his interference are 

two assets of no mean value lo the team. 
And then Aggie- has her line. With Caviii 

back in the hi"- "P • l,l<l ■ possibility ol 
Sawyer setting into the g-im<- the hue 
ought to b<- much stronger than last

Following the whittle in .my loot-

than roan) raaHae, eapedally il.osc who 
have nut become engaged i» i' ol late.

when a large crowd is in attendance. 
Thoae who see tin- Amherst game Satur-

to witness this inadequacy at close range. 
But there is ao place i<> lav the blame

that one attempl t<> erect mch ■ gate bee

win we ^hquld not have a respectable ami 
fitting entrance and exit to a field which 
malls to memory the men who, in the 

past worked with their awn hands that 

fut urt- damea might have what their 
predecessors lacked. There is no denying 
the lad thai the field itsell ttOSM in which 
c\crv Aggie- man may well take pride, 
•special!) since it was built under such 
significant circumstances, and it is appro- 
priately named Alumni I'ield. Hut then- 
is nothing imposing to create a good mi- 
prtssion a- one passes the present swmg- 

ing iron gate, In fact the splendid field 

and it* surroundings aresornewhai spoiled 

bv one's first view from the outside. 

\,,t only would a new. larger, more 
impressive gate add tothi held in general, 

hut it would he an excellent opportunity 
U> have tome such structure as a memorial 
to an individual or individuals, men who 
may have fought and won contests either 

on this new field or the old. 

Such an undertaking would he almost 
to., expensive for one man to sponsor, but 

if a certain group could he reached, in all 

probability a piece of architect tire could 

be erected which would not oof) serve as 

a memorial, if such was the general se-nti- 
mint but which would in any event pro- 
vide more favorable conditions for band- 
ling a huge crowd after an athletic contest. 
This article is directed more to those 
who have graduated from M.A.C than 
to the undergraduates, for the men now 
in college are backing Aggie to the limit 

of their ability. Hut there are men who 
can remember pleasant days on our 
campus, now engaged in line- of work 
which may not give them much chance 

to think about their Alma Mater, hut w< 
hope this group are almost extinct. Ami 

we also hope that those Alumni who . in- 
able to return for the Amherst game will 
make it a point to Study the existing 

conditions, and try to imagine the benefit 

to be derived from such a worthy cause. 
as i- lure suggested.

of unlimited cuts in this college. It still 
advocates the system. College men, if 
they are deserving of the title, ought 
to have moral stamina enough to at- 
tend .lasses sufficiently so that they 
can keep up to the standards of the 
class in scholarship without being forced 
to do so. If a man has not backbone 
enough to do that much or to do 
enough outside studying to make- up the 
work missed, then he receives his just 
reward when examination time comes 
and he fails. The unlimited cut system 
places the individual on liis own initiative, 
and if he is not man enough to take the 
responsibility of his own actions, then he 
deserves to fail, and college is no place 
for him. 

Introduction this fall of a system of no 
CtttS tor members of the sophomore class, 
as well as the freshman class in which it 
wa- instituted last year, led us to inquire 
how much further the plan was to be 
carried in the future, and also the in- 
formation that it is considered, though 
not definitely planned, as one of the 
changes for next fall or the year after, 
to place the- entire college on a no-cut 
basis. Flense do not misunderstand, 
„,,l an absolute no-cut system, but a cut 
System based entirely on scholarship. 
Students will he allowed cuts in no classes 
whatever unless a scholarship average 
vet to be determined, probably between 
SO and So percent, is maintained. I n- 
limited cuts will be permitted in such 
subjects as tin- average is earned and as 
long as it is held. The system is now in 
vogue in a number of colleges, and author- 
ities here are considering the plan for 
introduction in this college. 

Perhaps the plan would work out well 
lure; that we cannot say without cx|hti 
inenl. We feel, however, that it is not the 
kind of svste.n adapted to this college. 
Aggie men and women are of the right 
kind of mettle, we feel sure, and can be 
trusted to do their work as it is needed. 

It a system of unlimited cuts were in- 
augurated here, it would not only force 
certain of the members of our faculty to 
provide curses really worth-while in- 
stead ol those they are now teaching, but 
it would develop to a higher degree the 
initiative and individual responsibility of 
the students. It would elevate to a much 
higher standard the st udents of the college 
by eliminating in short order those- who 
might be unfitted to win a college edu- 

The scholarship basis of cuts is a good 
thing, but it dens not go far enough. By 
instituting a system of unlimited cuts, all 
-.indents would be brought to a higher 

standard of scholarship and given equal 

Opportunity to develop their intitiative 

and personal responsibility and indepen- 
dence. What do you think .iIhhU it?

ie Revue to Come 

During Decembei 

Elaborate Plans Point to a Big Event 
This Year. 

Another mystery solved! 

If you will remember, we made' some 

inquiry as to the deplorable scarcity of 
squirrels on the Aggie campus. And ware 

we answered? Yea verily, we were 
answered! We gave the prize to the 
brilliant suggestion that they probably 
knew they'd die of indigestion up here, 
but we had to go and take it away when 
a professor friend of ours explained t he- 
truth, which is that — 

1. Sepiirrels always go where they 
know there is food. 

2. lie feeds them peanuts and other 
delicacies prized by them. 

.'}. He lives off campus. 

4. Therefore — 

We also learned several interesting and 
hitherto unknown facts. Sepiirrels arc 
individuals. This professor has named 
several of them and says they answer to 
their names. So the next time- you see a 
scpiirrel, don't rudely say "Oh see- the 
squirrel". Instead, in a friendly tone say 
'•Come- hither, Reginald" or "Susie, allons 
ici", or even "Here, I'ete!", and if you 
happen to hit on the right name you will 
have a scpiirrel lurching soe iably on your 


Hut don't let your friends see you doing 
it. They will most certainly make an old 
and obvious remark! 


We learned why we should vote for 
whom (do you admire our grammatical 
constructions?), ami then they let us 
practise voting on straw votes, which we 
can't see how they got named that way 
unle-ss. being avowedly agricultural stu 
dents, they think we're hav-eeds. I low 
ever, we'll let that pass. 

Mr. CoobdgC won hands down, even 
after Mr. Woodhousc's remarks uncut 
Mr. Davis. We like the idea of shifting 
political parties every few years it 
reminded us strongly of Hilly Sunday's 
remark about his conversions not being 
permanent. He said you remember. 

"Not permanent? Well, maybe not, but 

neither is a bath." Shifting |>artic>, like- 
taking baths, might not be a permanent 
improvement, but it would probably be 
a great help! 

And, of course, we "do know some nice 
people who nrc Republicans." 


A Suggested Improvement 
Dear old lady on street car: "That's 
Amherst Aggie down there. To the 
right. What say? No, 1 elon't know what 
all them buildings to the left are. I think 
it's the State Institute for the bccble- 

Ami every day or so we get this from 
a passing car: "Which way to Amher-t? 
How far is it? What's this place?" 

Let's get a label! 

Have you ever seen railroad stations 
with the names s|>clled out in flowerbeds? 
Well, that's our idea. On the sIojk- be 
tweofl Wilder and Clark plant a nice big 
bed of nice loud salvia and cannas and 
things, giving all the necessary inform- 
ation about the place, in a form something 
like this: 


Plana are now well under way for the 
annual Aggie Revue, which is to be held 
in December. Novelty is to Ik- the 
keynote ol this v ear's show, and every 
effort will lie made to make it well worth 
attending. Definite plan- have not been 
announced a- vet, but it is expected that 
tliev will Ik- completed this week. 

The following committees are hard at 
work for the three upper classes: senior-. 
Mhe Marion Slack. Kmil Corvvin, and 
George Church; juniors. Miss Marguerite 

Bosworth, Mi- Shea, and Theodore

Americanism is not a sentimental 
loyalty to a set of timeless principles of 
life and government that we must assume 
are applicable to every sort of situation 
in every generation. Aineriianisni is, on 
the contrary, a selective loyalty to a se-t 
of frankly tentative principles of life and 

government that we must compel to 
justify themselves by their workability in 

each succeeding ge-neration. With these 
two general statements as a starting 
point, we may list some- of the more 
ipscific things that Americanism is not. 
We may thus get at some of the as|)ce ts 
t)f Americanism by a processof elimination. 
I'irst, Americanism is not an uncritical 
belief in all things American simply be- 
cause they are American. Patriotism is 
not blindness to the faults of the father- 

Second, Americanism is not whistling 
to keep up courage-. It is bad enough to 
Ik- honestly blind to the faults of one's 
country. It is worse t<> know them and 
then refuse to recognize them in the 
belief that it is unpatriotic to Ik- critical 
of one's own. 

Third. Anierieanisiii is not a matter ol 
race. It looks as though the Nonlic 
apologists have been a bit hasty in their 
generalizations: they are apt to be 
elogmatists in scientist's clothing. Hut 
whether these Nordic doctrines are true 
or not, for us the die is east. Foreign 
blood is in the veins of our national life. 
We- are already a medley of people s . For 
one tiling, then, Americanism must be 
a way of living together of various racial 

Fourth, Americanism is not a belief in 
the infallibility of the- majority. "Majority 
rule" basso far be-en the liest method that 
men have found for governing them 
Selves. Democracy caiinol work unless 
the minority is Sportsmanlike, but We are- 
likely to t>verlook the- fact that the 
majority is also obliged to lie s|x>rtsman- 
like. And that is what the majority is not. 
The besetting sin of the- ma j o rity is this: 
it wants to use the device of majority rule- 
tor silencing cont rov er sy as well as sell ling 
contests. It wants to standardize opinion 
and that s|k-IIs the- death of any nation 
that |MTinits it. The majority has never 
taken an advance Step on itsowa initiative-. 
It has always Ih-c-ii prodded into progress 
by the minority. This means that anv 
Americanism worth having must guaran- 
tee- the utmost freedom of thought ami 
discussion. A valid Americanism will 

protect its pioneers. 

Fifth, Americanism is not pure De- 
mocracy. The American tradition is a 

tradition of r epresen tative republ i ca n i sm . 

In general, pure democracy tends to 
government by delegates, while repub- 
licanism tends to government by repre- 
sentatives. Democracy rests on the 
assumption that the crowd should do the 
thinking and that the representative 
shemld carry out its orders in detail. 
Republicanism rests on the assumption 
that the crowd should select its su|x-rior 
men and, unless they betray their trust, 
should give them a pretty free rein for 
leadership. It is to the lasting credit of 
the fathers that they founded a govern- 
ment on a synthesis of the republican and 
aristocratic principles. Hut their work is 
not sacrosanct. There is much that they 
did not foresee. Therefore, it is not 
lese majesty to discuss the wisdom of 
revising the Constitution. 

Sixth, as is indicated in the above, 
Americanism is not slav cry to the opinions 
of the fathers. Government, like educa- 
tion, ought to be an adventure rather 
than a ritual. The highest loyalty to the 
fathers consists in meeting the issues of 
our generation with the same intelligence 

The ( snttgil no responsibility for opin

The man who said "P r o cras tination is 

the thief of time" had evidently had some 

experience in studying (orcxamai 

And that'- ! 

believing that a word, not in defense . 
but, rather, in explanation of the attitude 
of the 'Two Near student, may not be 

amiss in clearing up a misunderstanding 

which has recently found its way into 
public expression, this article is respe-c I 
fully submitted to the entire student 
body and alumni of M.A.C. 

Since we, the Two Year students, do 
not for one moment believe "Tolcram e 
to be the expression of the majority of 
four year students who lH-lieve in fair 
play, we are able the more calmly, to and consider this malicious article. 

Are not both two-year and four-yen 
freshmen drawn front the same material. 
They both are similar in every way at the 
time of their entrance- to college. The 

number of Two Near students who per- 
haps could not pass the entrance exami- 
nations in scholarship is small enough to 
be almost negligible. They both must be 
curbed and molded from the instant thai 

the-v reach the- campus. This is accom- 
plished by student discipline, with two 
aims in view; firstly, for their own good 
and secondly, above all.fejr the- sakeof the 
good name of M.A.C., to which their 
attitude should Contribute after leaving, 
particularly by their service to their 
fellow men and to the-ir community. 

The four-year men ste-p into a cut and 
dried routine which has excellent result - 
There are many rules with many to en- 
force them. They may look forward to 
three more years of college life as under 
graduates. The Two War men, em tin 
other hand, enters a life quite different. 
He has not much time to spend on his. 
college- life- and an appeal to his better 
nature takes the place of freshman rou- 
tine. He may not respond as quickly, 
but he docs respond. 

Who shall judge whether or no he is a 
credit to M.A.C. when graduated? At 
least an ahunnii- body of only five years 
may still- have its possibilities. 

When there is admittedly so inueh of 
value in the four-year college life anel its 
influence on the undergraduates, what 
could Ik- more b eneficia l than a reason 
able friendship between all students. 

The writer enjoys the un i que experience 

e>f having been both a four-year and a 
two-year student with all the trimmings 
He knows whereof he speaks and he ad- 
mits the value of student discipline though 
he was never the guest of honor at a pond 
party or any like function. Apart from 
the comedy of the thing there are value - 
The Two Year frosh pays the same elites 
for athletics, Collegian, etc., that any- 
one else iloes and rightly so. It makes for 
more solid sup|x>rt of school activities. 
He is expected to show the same college 
spirit as anyone else. Our football team, 
at one time this fall, enjoyed the pleasure 
of practice scrimmage with the varsity 
team, and, if practicable, or if they can 
Ik- of any assistance to any college act ivit > , 
they, or any other representative of the 
Two Year course is always glad to do 
anything in his power. He wouhi like to 
be friendly with the four-year man for 
the latter has a scholastic advantage 
which should have a wonderful influence 
on his a s so ciat es, yet the Two Year man 
is not permitted to participate in any 
college activity, which is also as it should 

With the above explanation let us 
consider more "Tolerance." 

We acknowledge constructive criticism. 
1 ,e lit ering, in it self, is inconvenient to ot her-. 

therefore selfish, but not necessarily 

boorish and it is significant that tin 
Short Course Student Council at its last 
meeting, obviated the publication of 
"Tolerance" by a memorandum to the 
Two Near students, through the Director 
of Short Courses, that thyre should be 
(1) no loitering in front of Draper Hall. 
L'i less noise by Two Year students in 
Draper Hall at mealtimes anel (3) le-- 
noise when leaving a campus building, 
where classes are being held, eiuring clas- 
hours. This is a matter of record. Tin 

Student Council delegates two of its 

members to Ik- present at all Amherst 
College games played on home gremnd- 
when M.A.C. cIik-s not also have home 
games, for the purpose of su ppres sing 
unsportsmanlike behaviour by two-yc.n 

students. Several men were sufficiently 

disciplined last year for unnecessary noise

The Two Year football team easily 
defeated the eleven from Springfield 
Central High at Alumni field last Friday 
afternoon by a score of :>•.» to 0. 

Coach ball's aggregation gave the 
Springfield men very lit le opportunity to 
score, by allowing them to have |>ossession 
very little and to gain only one first down, 
near the end of the game. This was made 
when Golan, a Springfield halfback, made 
fifteen yards on a run around left end. 

The Two Year line opened large- holes 
in the visitors' line continually, allowing 
the lacks to plunge through for long 
gains. Pickard again showed up as the 
Two Year's greatest asset. He not only 
made long gains through the line but he 
carried the ball over the Springfield goal 
line three times. In this res|M-e t Des- 
rosiers was a close second, accounting for 
two six-counts. 

V. Tremonti, the Central fullback, did 
well for the visitors. He played a very 
good defensive game. Tribe and Truelson 
did good work for the shortcourse men, 
Truelson kicking several exeelle-nt drop-

that democracy is the only chance. If

today. Mellen, CooBdge, Stevens and 
Other Republican lenders actually behave

lying plan of Mr. Mellen's new hook is 
that if you want to make the country

prosperous, This is a long, drawn-out 
Contest between oligarchy and democra- 


The Democratic spokesman said that 

his party has not been entirely fie* from 
oligarchy, but that from 1800 to I860 it 
was a perfect oligarchy. Speaking of the 

Republican Party, however, he said. 
"Back in 1866 Lincoln founded the 
Republican Party an the ideas of democ- 
racy. But it has changed. The Republican 

Party has been ever since and now is 

oligarchic. The tariff is merely i means 

of making the rich richer and the poor 

poorer. I beheve that the tariif causes 

to be taken from the laborer much more 
than he gets out of it." 

The speaker likened Davis to Woodrow 
Wilson, saying that he is more like \\ ibjOfl 
than any other man thev could have 
chosen. He said that the party is getting

'The third thirty platform is much

Republican and Democratic platforms 
are disgraceful. The old parties are over 
cautious. They are afraid to initiate 
legislation. The new party is not tied 
down. The great object is to turn out 
those who have stood for government of 
the people. La Follette and Davis agree 
on that point. If the La Follette people

ripped around right end again for 21) yank 
and I determined offense carried the bal 
to the 6-yard line. With the COUS

ball through tackle, made first down 
and Hilyard crashed the center for th 
final yard. Jones tied the score by kick

of the last touchdown and forgetful of the] 
heat and their handicap in weight, tht 
"Little Red Machine" again began t 
function. Yard after yard was bitterh 
fought for and bitterly given up. Another| 
long run by McGeoch featured this httl 
Aggie charge. Finally the ball was on tht] 
one yard line, with fourth down and on 
yard to the goal Sullivan took the httl 
and dashed over the line for the tyiiu 
score. But they weren't satisfied with

game on his talented right toe and he SM 
equal to the responsibility. Straight ami 
true the ball sped between the uprights 
and the Aggie rooters went stark mad for] 
pride in their team, a team which didn't 
know when it was "licked".

McConnc-U of Pittsburg -Urges Ad- 
herence to Christian Principles. 

"How shall we sing the Lord's song in 
a strange land?" was the question u|>on 

whidi bishop Francis J. McConeeH of 
the Methodist Episcopal Church of 

Pittsburg based the first cha|>el sermon of 

the year. Ueiug the one hundred and 

thirty-seventh psalm as his text, he pre- 
sented the problem of upholding tht 
gos|>cl in an indifferent world, saying, 
••The Christian idea is to proclaim the 
truth anyhow." 

"The doctrines of the gospel are not 
taken seriously by the world now. Then 
is paganism in business, there is paganism 
in social lines, there is paganism in inter- 
national affairs, there is paganism in 
racial contacts. How can we sing the song 
of Christ in the world as it is today ? Some 
say that because of the conflicts we should 
not mention the doctrines. But that is 
not Christian. It is the business of every- 
one to hold them up. That was the spirit 
of Christ. Suppose Jesus had followed any- 
other ideal. Suppose Jesus had said to 
just do the best you could under the cir- 
cumstances. His doctrines would have 
died in less than three years after his death.

the song".

Teamwork a Big Factor in Aggie 
Victory over Townsfellows. 

The s up erior team work of the Aggie 
harriers was the deciding factor in their 
victory over the Amherst five-milers last 
Friday afternoon by I score ol 2642. 
ream work is often regarded as unim- 
portant in a cross-country run but this 
opinion was disproved in this race, lane 
and Tomkins of Amherst took the first 
two places but the Agates clinched the 
race when five of them finished ahead of 
the next Amherst man. The Aggie team 
was handicapped by the absence of 
Wheeler and Henneberry. The order of 
finishing: first, Lane (A;; second, Tomkins 
(A); third, Nottabaert (M); fourth, 
Bartlett (M); fifth. Crooks (II); sixth, 
Slowen (M); seventh, Tobey (M); eighth

Mary Harrington to Play Only 
Female Part in Mary Boyd's Play. 

Although committees of the three upper 

classes are hard at work, the Freshmen 
alone have made definite arrangements

is to be held in December. They have 
decided to present the play "Work

Sign Boards 

A mutter brought ""1 i'» 'he Cider Pre* 

of last week which was treated somewhat 
tightly, but which also has a deeper sig- 
nificance is that con c erni ng the labe llin g 

of the college, more f<>r the edification ol 

visitors than as a means of cheap adver- 
tising. Doubt less main have beefl ion- 
fronted with the embarrassing situation 
outlined in the aforementioned column, 
and regarding the matter from a serious 
angle, it does seem almost a pity that upon 
lning informed by a st ndeiit that a travel- 
ler is on the "Aggie'' campus, the next 
qmet iotl is "How far is Amherst?" 

We who attend classes and activities 
and live four years of OUT life on this 
campus find it hard to realize that there 
are those who have never been put aright 
as to iust where Mas* Aggie i> located, if 
indeed they knew such an institution 
exist etl, hut such is the case in main 

instances, never-the leas. 

The episode of the burning sign is not 
■U lar in the past hut what moet <>f the 
men on the campus can recall the late ol 
the guide which the authorities saw fit to 
place at the entrance of the campus last 

Spring. The action <>i the students follow- 

Hkg the erection of this sign would seem 
to indicate that the general sentiment is 

that this i> not the proper method <»! 

enlightening visitors ttS t<> their where- 
about-. I'-ut would it not lie' possible to 
work up -oine mean- of carrying out this 
idea in a pit -asing and pi c-entalile manner.'' 
The suggestion accompanying the arti- 
cle in the Cider Press i- not a bad one. lmt 
could it be easily worked up? 

The member- of this hoard would he 
glad t" hear the -ititiment of the student 

bod) expressed regarding this important 

situation, and will lake all -tip- within 
reason for the fostering ot the general 

dan '■ tin- evening:'" "Hey, what's thai 

guy driving at? Huh? oh, 1 getcha, am I 

dragging a WOCUM? Why didn't he BS) 
what he till ant am way f" 

yOU sec? What we mean i>, we have a 
number, a rather small number, at 
that, ol catch phrases. When we want 

to -ay anything, we match the most 

appropriate of these phrase- and wrap 
our idea around it. All catch words are 
astoundingly clastic. "I'll tell the world" 
fits anything from grandmother's lovely 
I uncial wreath to "She swings a mean 
line", and so with most of the others. 

I nderstand, we're not trying to say 
that we should stop using slang and speak 
in the classical diction of the Atlantic 
Monthly. Never! The campus would lost- 
half its casual charm if we should develop 
into a community of purists; if "How'd 
you hit the quiz?" should invariably he- 
come "Were you successful in your exami- 
nation?" Hut— and we do believe this 
WC are becoming the slaves of slang, where 
WC should be the masters. 

A judicious use of free speech, by which 
in this case we mean speech free from 
slang, would not be too hard to accom- 
plish, and it would add a lot to our 
vocabularies, and thus to our eventual 
self-possession. For sometime, perhaps 
before we graduate, and most certainly 
afterwards, we are going to find ourselves 
in situations where slang is manifestly 
inappropriate. And then, unless we can 
express ourselves freely and easily, we art- 
going to shift from foot to foot, blush 
bright red, and wonder what to say and 
how to say it. 

Practice makes perfect, in this as in all 
tilings. Why not do a little experimenting 
in the line of free speech?

The College and Free Speech 
Freedom of speech vva- one of the- first 

tenet- of our faith to be set down by the 
writers of our Constitution. We were to 
say what We thought a- we pleased to s.iv 
it. That, theoretically, i~ one of the 
foundations of out national liberty, and 

that is just what we have- made it. a 

College is an especially good proving 

ground for such an assertion as the above. 
Again theoretically, an institution of 
learning should present unparalleled op- 
portunities lor self expression. Actually. 
•what happens? The result is apparent. 
Free expression of thought, ves. hut 
rigidly defined by a limited sehc lion of 
phrases. We are crippled by catchwords, 

chained by slang. We do very little think- 
ing for ourselves .mvvv.iv. as lar as that 
goes. There is little necessity for it, since 
our work is defined for us by our instruc- 
tors, and feci to us in carefully pre-digested 

morsels. However, we are quite at liberty 
to express ourselves concerning anything 

in heaven, on the earth, or under the 
earth, in any way we sec lit. As a matter 
of fact, what we do is to take an idea and 
cram it into a straight-jacket. Instead of 
honestly trying to express a meaning in 
our own words, we custom tailor it. For 
example: "Are you escorting a girl to the 

Think It Over 

There has been much discussion about 
the campus the past week concerning the 

two date- of November 22ad and 27th. 

The former is the day of the Tufts game 
at Medford, and the latter Thanksgiving. 

A dose scrutiny of tin- campus calendar 

will show that there- is a matter of two 
and one- half days of classes between these 

t\\o dates. 

The- main question has Im-cii, "How can 
I afford to go to Tufts and home, too?" 
Ami the- answer in most ca-e-s i>. "I can't, 
so I'll go home." It is understood that 
practically sixty per cent of the student 
body live within t vventy liv c- miles of 
Boston, which means that they will go 
home the night of the 22nd at least. 'Then, 
if the present plan is effective, everyone 
must return for two end one-hall days, or 
until Wednesday noon. 

We believe that it is the sentiment of 
the- student body that two or three days 
he taken off of some- other vacation, in 
order to make up for the time- lost, it any 
way is seen to grant u- this extra time at 
Thanksgiving. And we have- no doubt but 
that such a change- on the part of the 
authorities would result in an increased 
attendance at the- 'Tufts game-, where 
Aggie has .ilwav- made an excellent show- 

Of course there are- those who will at- 
tend the 'Tufts ganic in any event, but 
our point i- that there- are many who 
will not. since they arc unable to bear till- 
extra expense of a second trip to boston 
and vicinity three elays later. 

This is merer) a suggestion, and i- not 
in the form of a petition, but many 
things can be accomplished if approached 
in the proper manner through the proper

Random Notes from Assembly 

1. "My son," said the aged grey- 
haired mother, "Vou are all I have. You 
must not hesitate. For your country's 
good and you mother's happiness do not 
stay at home and be killed. Go to war 
and be safe." 

It is better to wear khaki and live to a 
green old age (wonder why they say that? 
Usually they say you are "green" when 
you are young!) than to live in Boston 
and have your friends say "Doesn't he 
look natural! What was it, an axe or a 
meat knife?" 

( )ur new motto is: I'd rather be in a war 
than in New York or Chicago. 

2. "Our danger lies at home." The 
lady told us that. This is new to us. 
From bitter experience in our jam-stealing 
days we had it thoroughly pounded into 
us that the danger comes in lying at 
home. Live and learn! 

8. If the nation's real army of defense 
is, categorically speaking, the butcher, 
the baker, and the candlestick maker, 
here is our idea of

With Dean's Board coming out Satur-

destructive-. Hut those who feel that

inventing a series of up-to-date appli-

has only done one, and that under the

idea is good anyway. Here is his initial

Apropos of the Amherst game I how

We saw a squirrel on the campus

And that's that! 

Williams has the largest enrollment in 
its history this year, with a total of 743 
men registered, an increase of 67 over 
last veai's figures. There are 277 fresh- 
men, making the largest class ever to 
enter the cottage. 

Dean's Hoard to know that he has been 
treating himself to a great disillusionment, 
and that it is high time to get back to 
bed-rock and put in a few hours at honest 
work, before he is able to congratulate 
himself on having just "squeezed" by 
once more. 

So do not think of the Dean's Board as 
just another of the unnecessary evils in 
college life, but regard it as an index, try- 
ing to help rather than hinder. 


Where did Cain get his wife? This is a 
natural question. If the early chapters of 
"Genesis" are to be taken literally, noth- 
ing can be asserted more clearly than that 
Adam and Eve were the parents of the 
entire human family. If the early chapters 
of "Genesis" are not to be taken literally, 
it is a reasonableprocedure to ignore the 
question. From the highest view-point, 
these statements are true. But they are 
not true from every view-point. All 
mysteries are intelligible challenges to an 
intelligent mind. The question of where 
Cain got his wife is admittedly an intelli- 
gent question, and it might be claimed 
with some plausibility that it is an impor- 
tant question. At the lowest, the question 
has the odd interest which any puzzle has. 
At the highest, one's answer is likely to 
determine his theory of the formation of 
the Bible. 

If the question be thought of as being 
merely odd, the natural thing to do is to 
give it an odd answer. Such an answer 
is that Cain's wife was made as was Adam 
from the dust of the ground, or was taken, 
as Eve was said to have been, from the 
side of her future husband. Some people- 
have propounded this theory without even 
a smile. Yet God does not do grotesque 
things; and it is likely that a number of 
minds, made, it must be rememl>ered, a 
little like God's, would see something 
grotesque in the idea of a Cain brought up 
from babyhood, childhood, and youth to 
meet a ready-made bride. No, this 
answer will not do. 

Then comes a matter of fact conjecture. 
Eve may have had daughters not men- 
tioned in the Bible. Cain may have 
married his sister. Yet the Bible does not 
say that Eve had daughters, and few 
readers will care to suppose them in order 
to supply Cain with a wife. Another 
solution of the search for Cain's missing 
wife, a solution which affects one's the- 
ology, is found in the theory of what is 
called the "original autograph". The idea 
is that if WC only had the Bible as God 
originally gave it, all the mistakes now 
ap|Kirent would be found to be corrected. 
all lapses and losses would be found to be 
supplied. There are facts that show that 
there are mistakes due to a long sueression 
of copyists. On the basis of those- facts. 
however, to conclude that the original 
autograph was perfect and entire, lacking 
nothing of being absolutely correct astron- 
omy, geology, zoology, biology, geography, 
ethnography, genealogy, and national and 
individual history constitutes a leap in 
literary sup|K>sition for which no one can 
give any reason except that it ought to 
have- been so. In the original autograph 
it may have told how Cain got his wife; 
but there is no evidence that this is so. 
The mere desire of the individual to have 
it so cannot be said to have- much theolog- 
ical value. 

The only other answer avail. ible is that 
when the author of "< iencsis" Wrought to- 
gether the story of Adam and Eve and 
the Story of Cain, they were already old. 
old stories, and they had not always bee n 
told together throughout the years. When 
the author of "t .cm-sis" adopted the story 
of Cain to tell again, and to give it the 
moral depth which it had never before-, he 
placed it. as he- was bound to do, next to 
the story of Cain's parents and was care- 
less of any minor inconsistent ies between 
them. Those little failures to dovetail did 
not matter to him any more than tiny 
have to thousands of Bible readers since. 
In their finished state the two traditions 
probably come from different eras. 

But then, according to the theory that 
God used Moses as a mere instrument in 
the writing of "Genesis", it was God who 
omitted an essential link in the story. Tin- 
difficulty simply does not exist for the 
reader who sees the book of "Genesis" as 
a collection of historical naratives and 
traditions, brought from different places 
and ages, but all pulsing with the passion- 
ate assurance that God is the creator and 
preserver of the universe and that he is 
the rewarder of those who diligently seek 
him who is first seeking them. To such a 
reader it does not matter where Cain got 
his wife.

To the Editor of the Coi.i.koian: 

In the iaeue of the Collegian reach 
my desk this morning, I find a politic 
tirade directed against the Hon. Cs 
Coolidge, concerning his position at tl 
time of the Boston police strike-, writti 

apparently by a would-be defender of ti.J 

striking policemen. It was my privilegJ 
to serve for nearly three years as % 
officer in the Massachusetts State Guang 
on duty for eleven weeks in the Citv q 
Boston during the trouble. I have alw.iJ 
felt somewhat familiar with the mag 
events leading up to that now fauna 
situation, but I must confess my amaztJ 
mint at the cleverness of the writer in \\.\ 
development of his arrangement. 

I have read carefully the Forum art id 
and I find but one real point to the criti 
cism of the governor, and that is his e\.| 
dent belief that the executive should have 
"butted in" and removed Commission. 
Curtis for doing what he considered n 
duty. In other words, the Commission, 
should have been removed for not accepl 
ting a settlement with the men. 

The Police Commissioner and thtb 
Mayor had ample authority to cope with! 
the situation, even to the point of callinj 
out the local companies of the State ( man 
which was finally done. Had a comprol 
mise l>een made with the men at thatj 
time, no one knows how far reaching orl 
how disastrous might have been the ulti 
mate results, for the situation in Bostor| 
was more- than a local incident and tin 
unionizing of the Boston force was but| 
the beginning of a nation wide program. 

The people of Massachusetts registen-til 
in no uncertain terms their approval 
the firm stand of those in authority wh 
election came in NovciuIkt of that year | 
The stand taken by Calvin Coolidge at| 
that time was directly responsible for the 
lofty station he now occupies. 

The apparent inability of some thinking | 
people to understand something of tin 
moral calibre, splendid courage or mental 
fitness of the so called "silent man" in the] 
White House is to some of us a disturbing I 
thing. He is a product of the rugged| 
Vermont hills with a heritage of religion 
conviction ami moral adherence to princi- 
ples of right so characteristic of the strongl 

men of earlier New Taigland. He i- 
maste-r of English ami a student ofl 
government, with a firm belief in those | 
enduring things, on which this govern 
meat was founded, in direct contrast tot 
the su|K-rficial or radical te nden c ie s 
this present day. 

If there has Ik-cii but one outstanding | 

element of character displayed by tl 

president in his most trying year, it hai 
been his refusal to heed the hue and cr) 

of every demagogue until he personally 
knew wherein bis duty lay. Hisjudgmenu 
an- founded only after careful study and 
mature- deliberation, and In- follows t 1 

dictates of that e aim judgment to tin- end. 
regarelli -- ol its effect on his political fu- 
ture-. Surely the political destiny of thi- 

people tor these next four years will ad 

lie jeopardized in such hands.

ami were present at the completion of the 
jxmltry and egg-laying contest recently 
held there. The men who made the trip 
under Prof. Banta were Cassano, Hart, 
Tucker and Simons. Another group set 
out in another car, but were forced to 
alxindon the trip when the maeliine 
broke down in Springfield. 

The students examined some of the 
beat poultry stock in the country, hand- 
ling the individual birds and judging them 
with reference to their egg-laying capacity. 
The judging was, on the whole, quite 
successful. Among the hens which were 
judged was the world's champion egg- 
layer, with a record of H24 eggs in one year. 
This bird is owned in Massachusetts.

To make competition in studies as keen 
as it is in sports is the purpose of a new 
nation-wide contest being sponsored by 
Robert S. Hale, Harvard '91. 

The enthusiasm which ran throughout 
the student body before the Anihc 
game manifested itself Friday evening at 
a mass meeting with cheers and sfnginf 
that could be heard "Up on the hill" at' 
a bonfire that brought out the Amhe 
Fire Department. There were speechei 
by Dean Machmer and Director of Short 
Courses Yerbcck. "Huck" Love spoke fot 
C-team and "Pop" Clark told us about 
the team. 

About two hundred faculty members 
bad friends attended a party given in 

rench Hall Friday evening by the 
Hiusion of Horticulture. The program 
included the reading by Professor Sears 
f't a glmst story, which was acted out by 
Florence Sears with the aid of "ghosts". 
Mr, Dana, Director of the Forestry Ex- 
beriment Station, gave an unusually good 
performance as a medium. The program 

i- followed by fortune telling and stunts. 

f '*r a lunch, there was an hour of 
|hm< ing. The hall was decorated with 
forest leaves, corn stalks, and garden 
Jroduee, giving it a harvest effect. 

A match bsjtwcea Harvard and McGill 
(Montreal) played on May 13, 1S74 was 
the first intercollegiate football game ever 
contested. Harvard won; but on the 
second day was held to a tie in a contest 
played according to Rugby rules. 

The manner of playing was simple. A 
player could either "run, throw or pass" 
the ball when it came to him. "Many 
good struggles" are recorded in a contem- 
poraneous account. 

Eleven players participated in the first 
game; but as a matter of chance rather 
than design, four of the Canadian players 
having been detained in Montreal. For 
the first time in its history the Harvard 
team cast aside their usual costume con- 
sisting of the oldest clothes available and 
wore dark trousers, white undershirts and 
magenta scarfs wound round their heads. 
Their opponents appeared neatly uniform- 
ed in the English fashion. The game con- 
sisted of three half-hour periods. Five 
hundred people witnessed the struggle.

Feeling that some means must be 
devised to eliminate the indifference 
which has made the undergraduate body 
at Harvard well known among rolleges, 
the freshman discussion club has voted 
overwhelmingly in favor of hazing and 
other freshman-sophomore competition. 
The members of the club feel that by 
this method class and college interest 
will be stimulated and thus the value of 
the men to the college increased. 

Emerson tells how the mass of 
men worry themselves into 
nameless graves, while now 
and then a great, unselfish soul 
forgets himself into immor- 
tality. One of the most inspir- 
ing influences in the life of a 
modern corporation is the 
selfless work of the scientists 
in the laboratories, which it 
provides tor their research.

In response to an invitation addressed 
by President Hopkins of Dartmouth 
College to ten undergraduates a rc|>ort 
giving the student view point on edu- 
cational policy was issued late last 
semester. The document, about f(),(MH) 
words in length, is the most remarkable 
hit of work ever done by undergraduates 
in this field. 

\ definition of the "Pur|>ose of a 

College" prefaces the report. "It is the 
pur|>ose of the college to provide a selected 
group of men with a comprehensive back- 
ground of information about the world 
and its problems, and to stimulate them 
to develop their capacity for rational 
thinking, philosophic understanding, cre- 
ative imagination, and aesthetic sensitive- 
ness, and to inspire them to use these 
developed powers in becoming leaders in 

service to society." 

After declaring the faculty all ini|>ortant 
in any system of education, the Committee I 
declares that a more personal relationship 
between professors and students is desir- 
able. This they would bring about by a 
change in the method of instruction. The 
following recommendations are made: 
(Il the virtual abolition of lectures; 

(2) long time assignment by topic; 

(3) small classes meeting weekly; (4) 
office hours for consultation with pro- 
fesaors; (ft) written work in the form of 
short assigned |>ai>ers and (8) an addition- 
al check on the student's work designed 
to force the completion of each quarter's 
work before starting in on the next. 

Assignment to sections on the basis ol 
scholarship, the subst il ulioii of a program 
of |>criodic papers for the usual scries .,1 
examinations, the addition of a sixth 
letter to the marking system, and the 

allotment of cuts in p ro po rti on to a 

student's scholastic standing are also 

recommended. Abolition of the .list in. 

tion between the two degrees of A.M. and 
U.S. and the award of the A. P. to all 
successful candidates is another change 


In discussing the curriculum the Com 
mil tee suggests that the first two years 
be devoted nearly entirely to required 
courses designed to give the Student a 
cultural background ami that the last 
two vears be allowed entirely free for 
elect ives in the major and other depart- 
ments. The report concludes with a 
strong plea that the Selective Pro. ess 
now in use at Dartmouth be caret ullv 
studied and strengthened with a veiw to 
culling the ranks of those applying for

forward pass offense. Custafson inter- 
cepted the first pass and ran down the 
side lines behind good interference to the 
Amherst twenty yard line. Here "Red" 
Sullivan stepped into prominence by 
knifing through the left tackle in two 
successive plunges for the second score. 
Jones' toe was infallible. 

M.A.C. kicked off to Amherst and in 
three passes the ball was carried to the 
Aggie twenty-three yard line. Here the 
Sabrinas were held but Moberg, whose 
ankles was injured earlier in the game 
only punted to the fifteen yard line. 
Appreciating the futility of rushing. 
Amherst continued its forward pass game 
and the third attempt, Cadigan to 
Moore, was received behind the line. 
Moore dropkicked the point after the 
touchdown and, shortly after the half 


Drew, the Amherst flash, entered the 
game at the beginning of the second half 
but his ankle injury was too great to 
permit any successful work. The third 
period was replete with intercepted passes 
and charges down the field which were 
always checked in dangerous territory. 
The final score came in the last period as 
a result of a determined march by M.A.t 
from their twenty-five yard line to the 
Amherst twenty yard line. Hilyard 
through center, Sullivan through the 

tackle, and McGeoch around the ends and 
a pass from Sullivan to Custafson accoun- 
ted for this fifty-five yard advance. With 
their backs to the wall Amherst held for 
three downs. Then Jones dropped back 
for a placement, Custafson holding the 
ball for him and the boot was successful. 
The next kickoff gave Amherst the ball 
on their ten-yard line. Hill made a first 
down in two rushes but Cadigan fumbled 
and an Aggie man recovered only to lose 
the ball on the succeeding play when 
Hilyard fumbled and Menshell retrieved 
it. Amherst made two first downs and 
the game ended with Aggie in possession 
of the ball on the Amherst forty-five yard 

Captain Hill of Amherst was by far 
the outstanding figure on the field; his 
work, both offensively and defensively 
hard and rugged, was a big factor in the 
Amherst fight for victory. For the 
M.A.C. team, no encomiums can be ex- 
pressed for any individual. There were 
eleven men working as one with an iron 
will to win governing their every effort. 
Perhaps more noticeable than the con- 
stant supremacy of their team mates was 
the work of Marx, Custafson, Thurlow 
and Sullivan. Their efforts were a little 
more obviously well done than that of 
their fellows.

who tru>t. the nun who >ee, the world ol 
God is just as real a- the world of men. It

worlds." These are the words of the Rev. 
John Howard Melish, rector of the Holy 
Trinity Church of Brooklyn, N. V., 
preaching at Sunday chapel OS "The 
Vkabns Of Fife." "The men and Inns of 
every country and every century see 
horses and chariots of fire,' " he said, 
referring to his test. "They are the re- 
enforceinents of every good cause; the 
allies of every good man." 

The ■paaker said thai there are three 
worlds in which men can see 'horsts 
and chariots of fire." He named the first 
as the world of things, The inventor of 
the wireless, the inventors of the air- 
plane and the engineers of the great 
Brooklyn Bridge all had virions into the 
world of things. "They wrote the last 
chapter in that great story begun away 
back in Genesis. We too— every one of 
us — must write a chapter in that story. 
It may not be possible to add a great 
discovery, but each one of us has a great 
task to make his spirit conquer. 

"The world of men is the second world 
where \ -ision can be given to us." Here 
the preacher told of the glories of the 
martyrdom of an ancient youth who had 
died to arouse the people to reali/.e the 
sacrtdaw of life, saying that this man 
had vision in the world of men. "All of 
us are sent out into the world with our 
daily duties. The possibilities are seen 
only by the dutiful man.

The Aesthetic Side 

The subject of the aesthetic side ol | 
college education has been much discussed 
in this agricultural college of ours, and it 
is generally conceded that we do not get 
enough of it, even for an institution 
whose main aim and purpose is the pursuit 
of agricultural learning. < >f course we 
have our deviating course, such as Musu 

English, French, German, etc., but still 

we do not really get the cultivation of an 
aesthetic taste in any of these. 
In an eadcnvor to provide the students 

with a deeper appreciation of real art. 
various exhibits by famous artists have 

been show,, in the Memorial Budding 

from time to lime, all carefully labelled 
and well placed to bring out the qualities 
of beauty, S truc t ur e and naturalness to 
DC found in them. The present exhibit, 
made up of pictures by Miss Lesley- 
Jackson of Washington. D. C, are par- 
ticularly worthy of special notice, since 
some are scenes from our own sea-coast 
country. Miss Jacks.m's treat inent of Un- 
natural objects, as well as human figures 
and landscai>es in general not only show 
what wonderful effects may t>e produced 
on paper with water colors, but also n- 
fleet the careful attention of the artist to 
detail and general effect. 

One needs but to see one picture in this 
exhibit to be overwhelmed with the 
charm and manner of ion of 
Scenes in parts of the world where main 
will never journey. It can hardly be denied 
that a better appreciation of the aesthetic 
value in art tends toward a greater reali- 
zation of the possibilities in ones own 
meagre field. 

Every student in college should make 
an effort to see these exhibits at least 
once iluiing their > ll, " t >la > lu ' n '' alul 
Should study them, not only because they 
are pictures, but because of the achieve- 
ment which they represent. 

Our New Gymnasium 

The student enrollment of Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College has increased 
steadily during the past tew years but the 

building program, it there ever has been 
one, has not grown apace. The GoeSB- 
mann Laboratory was constructed ol 
necessity; yet it is equally imperative 
that a more commodious library be built 
and what is even more desirable and quite 
as necessary, a gymnasium. 

The advantages of athletic training to 
the college Student has been recognized 
by educators and physical culturalists 
alike, and provisions have been made at 
most colleges t<> support it. The only 
building on our OUnptH which could be 
used lor any athletic endeavor is the Drill 
Hall ami even the rankest sentimentalist 


How many football games are won or 
lost at half-time? What would happen if 
the "Little Red Machine" should rest 
contented on the strength of a leading 
s<ore at the middle of the game, or should 
give up, discouraged, because the opposing 
team hapi>eiied to be ahead at that time? 
YOU would probably tnink the team yellow 
and you would not be far from right. 
Luckily, that never happens to the "Little 
Red Machine." Let us apply the case, 
however, to yourself and myself. 

It is now half-time in the term's work. 
The Deans Board last Saturday showed us 
where we stand. We know our weak points 
and our vulnerable spots. We know where 
to direct our energy in order to put across 
a successful term. Now is the time to 
start the winning drive. Up to this time 
we have faltered, perhaps, It has taken 
some time to adapt our methods to con- 
fronting conditions. Our brilliant coups 
have been thrown for losses. Hut now— 
N( )\\ we know where we are, and what 
our task is. 

It is only half-time; it is no time to be 
discouraged. Half the term is gone,— but 
the other half is left. True, it is easier to 
descend than to rise; but "our greatest 
glory consists not in never falling, but in 
rising every time we fall." Remember 
how many times the old Aggie come-back 
has snatched victory from defeat? That 
is one of the distinguishing characteristics 
of the hypothetical "Aggie man"— he 
never knows when he is beaten. Now is 
the time to exemplify this ideal. 

On the other hand, if your name was 
one of the fortunate ones that did not 
appear on the Dean's Board, that is no 
reason for letting up. For every game that 
is won in the last half, one is also lost. 
It is easy to slip while resting on laurels 
already won, but it is not hard to hold on. 
The whistle has blown for the second half. 
Now or never, do your stuff! 

-J. L. 

The rain is falling thick anil fast, 

And all is dank and drear; 
You say it's not? Oh yes, it is— 
A thousand miles from here! 


Somewhat of an Expostulation— 
"Amherst Alumni gather to celebrate 
World Aggie Night"— newspaper head- 

Loyal sons of old— Jeffrey Amherst, 
what? After all these years, and several 
generations of prominent graduates, one 
would think the public at large, and the 
reporter in particular, would begin to 
start to commence to learn that Amherst 
and Aggie are not one and inseparable, 
now and forever. But they won't, and 
they don't, and so we are edified by such 
choice bits of information as the above. 

Let's all join in the chorus of that 
grand old song:"Though our college is in 
Amherst town, it still is M.A.C." 

Again we reiterate, we need a label. A 
big one, so that even the reporters will 
reluctantly refrain from talking about 
"Amherst Aggie"! 


Now, ladies and gentlemen of the 
Amherst Agricultural College, last Satur- 
day having been more or less successfully 
Hung into the past, we offer you the follow- 
ing moral ditty, in preparation for the 
next black and blue Saturday: 

Fable for Exam Time 
Once there was a student 

Who said, "I don't give a— penny, 
or something — 
If every man in college 
Tells me I ought to cram. 

I'm going to do my work each day, 

Absorb my daily lore: 
And then not frantically bone 

Two or three days before. 

Then a few hours, just to review, 

And I will know it all. 
It is not necessary 

To give midnight oil a call." 

And so, while others txined and groaned, 

Calmly he went his way, 
And every night at ten o'clock 

Serenely hit the hay. 

He just reviewed — he never tried 
Feverishly his stuff to cram; 

He went with mind untired, serene, 
And— failed in his exam! 

The good old ways are very good 

Based on experience deep and wide: 
Teachers and books say otherwise— 
We let our conscience be our guide! 

Hello and Hi! 

It is a deplorable fact, but each year, 
after the freshmen have had a chance to 
become acquainted to some extent, and 
to become somewhat familiar with the 
campus customs and traditions, the matter 
ol saying "Hi!" must be brought up. It 
i, as noticeable this year as in any year 
past that the- new men seem loathe to 
enter into this brief but cordial form of 

If. in passing a man on the street, an 
upper-classman receives no response to a 
nod or a word, he begins to wonder 
whether he- is on the Clarke School campus 
or the Mass. Aggie grounds. It isn't a 
hard thing to ask of any man. It does not 
require any great amount of courage or 
effort, and it helps to bring about a feeling 
of belonging here. 

So it vc.u cannot say "Hi" at least say 




could not concede 

-ingle point m it: 

favor as a gymnasium. Verj little sun- 
light ever penetrates its murky interior, 
the Coarse wooden Hoor is patched and 
weak, quaking at the slightest weight. 
the- low celling inhibits the proper con- 
duction ol a game like basket ball, the 
shower room and it- equipment is a source 
ol constant annoyance u> the athlete, ami 
tin locker room is entirely inadequate to 

harbor the various teams which find its 

accommodations necessary. Truly such a 

building, which not only lias outlived its 
original put pose but also ha- a deleterious 
effect upon our otherwise attractive 
campus, should be supplanted by a 

(dstlv misplavs and inability to come 
through iu the pinches caused the defeat 
of the M.A.C. Two Year football team 
at the hands of Commerce High of Spring- 
field by a score of &-0. M.A.C. gained lar 
more ground than Commerce, making long 
gains through the line, but whenever the 
ham threatened to scoVe, the Commerce 
defense stiffened and prevented further 
advance-. The first score, a safety, came 
ill the Krai quarter, ami was the result of 

a wild peas by Hartney, which Tuelson 

recovered behind his own goal. No more 
scoring was done- until the final period, 
when runs by Captain Sullivan of the 

Commerce team carried tin- ball to within 

Consider the Lilies- - 

We must apologize to the professor who 
i- sometime warder, feeder, and trainer of 
the campus squirrels, for further levying 
on his class room remarks for column 
material. But material is short and the 
column is long— and when stuff is as 
intrigueing as this is-Just listen! There- 
are in this world, he says, llowers— wait a 
minute! We know you know it, but not 
such flowers as these!— as we were saying, 
flowers of most gorgeous hues, purple and 
scarlet and gold-striped flowers. But no 
one ever picks them, because: 

1. Some of them smell like dead mice. 

2. And some like dead I.imburger cheese 

3. And some — 

like dead elephants! 

We respectfully suggest to the Floricul- 
ture majors further consideration of a 
potentially remunerative industry: name- 
ly, the raising of such (lowers for particu- 
lar people on particular occasions. 

We have known people to whom we 
would have been delighted to send bou- 
quets of.No. 1, No. 2. or No. 3— or even 
choice combinations of all of them! 
Haven't you? **« : ♦ . , _ 


For Correspondence Only 

Dear Editor! I heard some one say 

that student forums were valuable, but I 

went to the one last Thursday, and didn't 

hear anyone say anything, so why are 

they valuable? 

Puzzled J'ete. 


Any discriminating discussion between 
the relationship of scholarship and ath- 
letics necessitates a careful definition of 
these terms. One type of athletics makes 
news for the sporting page and the other 
makes for sound bodies and sounder 
sleep. Most college men use the term 
athletics to cover the same subject as 
that covered by the sporting page editor. 
In the case of scholarship, it is well to 
distinguish between a love for, the pursuit 
of, and the attainment of intellectual 
growth on the one hand, and on the other 
the securing of marks, whether these marks 
are sought for the privilege of remaining 
in college, or for the purpose of affixing 
certain Greek letters to one's name in 
the college annual. At present the former 
connotation has the wider usage. 

Many who point out the errors of our 
present system of atnletics, believe firmly 
in athletics for physical recreation and up- 
building, for social intercourse, for self- 
mastery, and for the making of a sym- 
metrical personality. Definite develop- 
ment is given along highly worth-while 
lines. Successful athletes quite often get 
a training that makes them patriotic, 
sacrificial students, successful business 
man and loyal alumni. Members of the 
cheering section also gain a fellowship 
with other members and a devotion for 
their college that have their value. All of 
these values are recognized, but they are 
not necessarily connected with intellectual 
development, nor do they make for a 
wholesome athletic experience on the part 
of mosses. The whole emphasis leads 
away from normal physical and intellect- 
ual growth, toward sixrctacular profes- 
ionalism on the part of the players and 
ring-side worship on the part of the 

While it is true that the spectacular 
sixirts have the college at their disposal 
now, it is not quite accurate to place the 
blame for lack of interest in scholarship 
on our athletic methods. Ours is a 
civilization given to worshiping means 
rather than ends, quantity rather than 
quality, bigness rather than greatness— 
and our colleges are an integral part of 
this mode of thinking and living. We are 
too inclined to judge the greatness of a 
college by its enrollment, by its buildings, 
by its athletic victories. We teach the 
students of preparatory' schools to watch 
with great discrimination the progress of 
athletes in the different colleges they 
might attend, but we are much less able 
to distinguish between the intellectual 
contributions of the different institutions. 
We have created a standard that is far 
removed from the ideal of scholarship- 
little wonder that the men who go to 
college miss the intellectual side of college 
life. Little wonder that they miss the 
true ideal for athletics. 

And so is the ideal of scholarship which 
we are here setting forth missing in our 
faculties to a great extent. Stereotyped 
matter delivered in a stereotyped way 
places no challenge before young men. 
Our major athletic contests do present a 
challenge. Study is dull; study is monot- 
onous. Students who have been regi- 
mented into academic lockstep put no 
individuality or originality into their 
recreation. Having missed the joys of 
scholarship, they require relief through 
other channels. So men watch and howl, 
and constantly demand more exciting 
contests but they seldom play. Scholar- 
ship lags; real athletics arc rare. 

It should not be so. Youth is full of 
energy and searching for worlds to con- 
quer. We must raise up new aims, new 
and higher loyalties, more gratifying 
pleasures. Let us have class room work 
that js challenging and full of fun. Let 
us have athletics that stimulate the 
bodies and minds of all men. Empty the 
bleachers into the field, turn the class- 
room into the field, make of the field a 
big intellectual experience and a lark for 

Freshman Show 

The freshman girls presented a shot 
" Tam-o-Shanter" last l'riday evening 

the Abbey, to raise money for the " Tarn ■» 

Shanter Fund". The program, of which 
Caroline Dean, Bessie Smith, and Doro| 
then Williams were in charge, consist- 
of five acts. First came the "Highwa\ 
man", a shadow-movie accompanied l>, 
the reading of the poem. "Abbey SoWet" 
was cleverly done and showed that the 
freshmen have plenty of talent in tht| 
field of dramatics. Ruth Barber and Mary 
Harrington in a "Rag Doll Romano 
were well applauded. A one-act play 
"The Lighthouse" and a display of "Peri j 
odical Art" completed the program. As i 
result of the good attendance at the show, 
the "Tam-o-Shanter Fund" has markedly 
increased and the freshmen expect to be 
wearing their new caps soon. 

Harvest Party 

The substitute for the Abbey's Hallow- 
'en party came last Saturday evening in 
the form of a harvest costume party, given 
by Delta Phi Gamma and directed by 
Maude Bosworth '26, chairman of the 
social committee. Into the Abbey Center, 
which was decorated with corn-shocks and 
jack-o-lanterns, there came at seven- 
thirty a motley throng, to fall into line 
for a grand march. Nathalie Matson and 
Pearl Jones, acting as judges, awarded the 
prize for the best costume to Caroline- 
Dean '28, who went as a pirate. To Hjld.i 
Goller '27 they gave the award for the 
funniest costume; Hilda, with her be 
ribboned burlap dress and numerous pig 
tails was a good representation of "Topsv 
Following the presentation of the prim 
for costumes came a show, given by re-i 
dents of the first floor and directed by 
Miss Perky. A new type of intelligent 
test, a "Feature", a rag-doll dance by 
Reliecca Merry man Two Year '25, a movie, 
and a sketch by Frances Bruce '27 kept 
the audience well entertained. GumM 
and dam ing p receded refreshments. The n 
Maude Bosworth '26 gave in true 
Weatherwaxian fashion a pantomine act 
of going riding and to the movies, and 
Marion Cassidy '26 danced. The party 
ended with a sing. 


Mollie Lewis '23 entertained those of 
the M.A.C. alumnae who live in or near 
Boston at her home in Jamaica Plain last 
Saturday evening, World Aggie Night. 


A hike to the Amherst Cun Club came 
last Sunday for the memliers of Delta 
Phi Gamma and the freshman girls 
Miss Skinner. Miss Hamlin, and Miss 
Perlev were guests. 


The Athletic Club's challenge to basket- 
ball games was accepted by the freshman 
girls and the first contest took place las) 
Saturday afternoon. It resulted in a 88 
win for the freshmen. Edith Olsen's work 
at throwing baskets was the outstanding 
feature of the game. The score at the 
end of the first half was 10-4 in favor of 
the challenged team. The second hall 
proved even more disastrous for the

between the first two classes. During the 
first half of the game, the frosh show 
more drive than their op[>onents alth. 
they were unable to push the ball our 
the soph goal line because of loosenc 
handling the ball. I low ever, in the sat 
quarter, they went into the lead « 
"Red" Mahoney kicked a 2.">-yard 
goal from a difficult angle. 

In the third quarter Thompson assayed 
a peas which Robinson intercepted near

guarded by effective interference and 
behind the frosh goal posts. No poind 
was made afterward. During the lad 
period, the sophomores launched a pOWi 
ful drive which was stopped deep in fa 
man territory by the final whistle. 

The game was decidedly an open an I 
loose game The frosh tried many sal

■acoad year men tried to gain by 
aerial route, too. Both sides were w

Thomas Frederick Davies of Spring- 
field Talks on "What God is Like". 

"All the people in the world CM be 
divided into gr asp ers and givers. While 
we are in College we have got to think 
about our attitude of life. Most of us 
want to gel things out ol life. It is riyht 
that we BbottU want to be among ll"' 
getters. Vat, it i> t li*- ^m-i's vsliom we 

chiefly admire, God is always uivinK- 

If you are a niver, you are like Ood in 

that." Bishop Thomas Frederick Davies 
of Springfield, bishop of the diocese of 
Western Massachusetts of the Episcopal 

Church, made these si-tiitiralit state- 
ments in hi- Sunday chapel sermon on 
"What ( ,o<l is bike". 

The bishop said thai .;.cn have .>" orded 

to God the highest attributes of the 
material world. He referred to the virtir I 

given to the Greek god A| olio, to the 
conception <>f beaut} ami love which the 

ancient Romans personified in Venus, to 
the idea of si reitgl fa and courage expressed 

in Hercules tad to Minerva as symbolic 

of in. "I'll.-.- are not trivial eon- 

eeptions," the preacher said. "They are 
rather verv exalted on.s. But compare 
these conceptions with our Lord upon the 
cross. There is beauty not of extreme 
youth but of the prime of life. Pre- 
eminently there is that inner beauty of 
the soul. The Figure is not weak, but 
tin re is no indication of mere physical 
strength. There is the suggestion of gnat 
inner strength and character. Clory and 
triumph are there; the glory of sacrifice and 
the triumph of His soul. The Figure has 
supreme repose and confidence. He has 
in His hand no spear, no symbol of mere 
power, no sceptre, no statue of 
I think the attitude is most 
The arms are outstretched as if 
to say that the Figure welcomed the 
whole world to Him and gave Himself 
without reservation to the world. The 
contrast between the pagan statue and 
the Figure on the cross is no greater than 
the contrast between our lives and living 
in accordance with the teachings of the 


"I am not pessimistic. This age has 
much that is fine and commendable. There 
is a tremendous display of human power, 
commercial activity, wealth, and really- 
great generosity; but there is also a great 
deal of greed, lust, intemperance, dis- 
honesty, selfishness, disloyalty. 

"For what are you going to stand in 
life? What is your attitude toward the 
world? No attitude conceived by humans

of Index Competition 

The M.A.i varsity football team face 

another lough game next S.ilind.iv whe 
it meets the TuftS eleven al Medfon 
The TuftS team lias improved steadily 
alter an inauspicious start and should 
furnish the stillest kind of opposition lor 

the Goremee. Last Saturday the Jumbos 

were deleated I I to i:i in a hard game 
with the University of Maine while the 
Agates weie resting after smearing Stevens

Casey's team has played a seven game 
schedule with rather indifferent success 
and probably will make a supreme effort 
to terminate the season with a victory 
over their ancient rivals, The Aggie 
eleven lias lieen deleated onlv oik e but 

has played a comparatively easy schedule 

with the eacep t ion of the Conn. Aggie, 
Amherst, and Wesleyan games. If t he 
demonstration of football di spl a yed by 

lulls in the Middlebury game is any 
criterion, then M.A.C. will be easy 
victors; but it is rumored that the Junilio 
eleven has greatly improved shtCC that 
game ami is in e\eellent condition to 
.oiliest the laurels Willi oill Agl.iliails. 

Share, the TuftS giant tackle, who made 
the play in the Aggfa TuftS game last 
which led to the winning seote, is rated 
a- one ol the best guards iii the l.i-i and 
has besfl a big cog in the line all season' 

When Share meets Thuriou he will be

Amherst College Has 

A New College Song 

Amherst College, much envied possessor 
of the song "Lord Geoffrey Amherst ", 
not content apparently to rest on her 
reputation as it stood, introduced a new 
song, "Sons of Amherst", at the football 
game with her ancient rival, Williams, 
last Saturday. The new song, written by 
Prof. Charles K. Bennett of the Latin 
Department and sung to the tune of the 
Fascisti marching song, did not help her 
avert defeat as Williams emerged the 
victor 27 to 6. 

Of the twelve oldest persons now living 
who have received degrees from Harvard 
College, ten were born in this state and 
seven still live here. Without doubt the 
most active of these is President-emeritus 
Charles W. Eliot of Cambridge, whose 
ninetieth birthday was celebrated last 
March. These twelve oldest are:

The Amherst game was repeated at 

assembly last week when the moving 
pi, lures taken during the game were 
thrown on the screen. The pictures 
were somewhat obscured by |*w»r foscus-

many of the ini|iortarit and s|mm tacular

Dean Mar -Inner remarked, the score was 
still 17 to 7 and Aggie was still ahead. 
The pictures of the game followed a 
government picture on the necessity of 
conservative forestation methods and on 
the di s a s te rs of forest fires.

brave men who battled odds greater 
than we. a., imagine, to whom we owe our

they established a precedent which ha- 
been maintained to thi> day. 

Some look forward to I lianksgiving M 
a means of going home for .i few day*, 
others as a time for a big dinner and a 
chance to net home cooking and lot- of 

it. But we hope that deep in the bearte 

of everyone there is I feeling that 1 hanks

When everything seems to be going 
against >ou and the future look- rather 

dark, did >ou ever atop to refect for ■ few 

moments how many things you have to 
be thankful for. The last Thursday in 
November is an excellent time to follow 

the example of those hardy explorers who 
set aside this day as the time for a mam 
fest thankagiving to Almighty Cod for all 

the good things in life, and to take a new 

step in an attempt to lessen the dark -ide 

and to make this world a better place in 
which to live. 

It would be useless to urge every one 
to spend the whole day in meditation, but 
is it asking tOO much that a lew luiiiulr- 

|,e devoted to a deeper appreciation of 

the true significance of this day, not only 
of the eiiciuiistanie- surrounding its 

observance but also the purpose which 
it symbolizes. 

Humor and Courtesy 

When Cubbothe « aveman knocked out 
hi- old grandfather with a -tone dub the 
,„ ighbora laughed until th'ir -ide- ached. 

When the Duke of Orieando dropped 
the enemy knight into a caldron <>i boiling 
oil bin retainers laughed until they were 
sick at hi- humorous death struggles. 

When a fat man slips on a banana peel 
we laugh until We cry. 

All primitive humor i- baaed on hurting 
someone. Now moat of u* have a huge 
streak <>f the primitive still lingering in

and tat men Chaamg derbies and burlesque 

-how- amuse ue. All in all, the instinct 

lor laughter i- ■ normal one, but it needs 
education to make it tit for the .hawing 


We have heard it postulated that college 
men and women are progressive, pro- 
gre-ing from crudity to suavity; from a 
blank ignorance of "i'aradi-e Lost" and 

other civilizing forces to a more or less 
comprehensive intellect uali-m. Is it then 
too much to expect that their senses of 

humor might Bkewiee progreas? 

When a Speaker in as-embly makes a 
mi-take, we laugh. That hurts the 
speaker. When ■ Bpeecfa is dull, and some- 
one .hops some money tin the tloor, we 
laugh. And that hurts the speaker. When 
queationa are called for. and we sit silent- 
ly in our places a few people begin to 
shuffle their feet, and we laugh. And that 
hurts the speaker. 

lair play for our assembly speakers] 
We owe them courtesy at least. If by a 
conscious effort we can educate a primi- 
tive sense of humor— or at least leash it 
pro RH*— WC shall be making our shakers' 
brief appearances here infinitely more 
enjoyable, both in endurance and in 

retrospect; and WC shall win for ourselves 
and our college an enviable reputation 
for COUrteOUS . on-ideration. 

And we can save our laughter— our 
unregenerate necessary laughter— for the 
movies and ourselves both of which, (let 

us be grateful) thrive on it!

The Movies and Us

Thia "seeing ourselves as ithera

When you can only sec fragment- of 

yourself at a time in e mirror, and that 

in a static condition, you don't quite 
realize how the peripatetic ensemble 

strikes the eye of the beholder. 

(Boy, page Mr. Webster again!) 

So that when > -oil see yourself grinning 
like a Cheshire cat or jumping up and 
down like B frog just learning to shimmy. 
or walking along with the peculiar undu- 
lating grace of a ten ton truck, it's some- 
what of a shock. 

But much fun. at that. If a trifle un- 
expected. Football, on the whole, takes 
kindly to the movies— or the movies to 
football, if you prefer it that way. And 
the band made a most satisfactorily 

snappy appearance. 

Chiefly, in viewing the Amherst game 
movies, we missed the cheering. To see 
pictures of shrieks is like hearing an 
oration from a tongue-tied clam. 

But the gang watching the movies 
made up for any other silence!

If you are going to Medford Saturday

be no need of this editorial, but we're 

afraid this is not the case. 

There i- no question but thai there will 

be a large number from the campus to 

back up the team when the eleven men 

face lull- for the first kick-off Saturday, 
th. only question being how large a 
number. The Tufts student body backed 

their team to the limit a year ago, and it

With the long evenings come long walks

the subsequent dangers on the college 


Any of v on who have driven automobiles 
realize the truth of the statement that it 
is almost impossible to see beyond the 
glare of approaching headlights, and you 
likewise realize how hard it is to see 
persons walking along the side of a road 
alter dark even when no headlights oppose 
yott. For illustration may be recalled the 
recent occasion when one of the students 
ol the college was struck by the fender 
ol an automobile coming from behind as 
be was walking along the road between the 
waiting Station and the campus entrance. 
Luckily enough, no harm wa- done, but 
how can we tell when someone will be 
Struck and knocked down by a passing 

automobile? Frank A. Goodwin, state 

registrar of motor vehicles, recently 
made the suggestion and recommendation 
that people who find it necessary to walk 
by the sitle Of a toad us.d by automobiles, 
should walk on the left hand side. In 

this way. a pedestrian can at all times 
tee every move of an automobile on his 

side of the road, and if for any reason the 
motorist find it necessary to turn out, 
the pedestrian can see this act in time to 
avoid b. ing struck.

hall and return with coat collars well up

1. Education is not efficient. Not in 
its raw materials, -which same is to say, 

our brains. 

2. They wouldn't fill a box with any 
kind of apples that came handy. They 
sort and grade and re-assort until the 
boxes contain a uniform product. Ef- 
ficiency enough there! Then they go antl 
fill a classroom with any old sort of 
brains, promiscuously, lumped in and 
lectured at, regardless of quantity, quality, 
and ambition. 

S. r>on't think we're trying to advo- 
cate segregation on an intelligence basis 
or anything like that. Nothing so banal. 

4. What we would like to see would 
be something like this: a division into 
appropriate clas-es, the division to be 
made by the student according to the 
way he feels that particular day. Sugges- 
ted classes are: 

Class A: nappy stuff for those well- 
prepared, ready to put out a high grade 

Class B: go.xi but harmless 

Class C: soothing lectures lor the un- 
prepared or the sleepy <>r the people who 

bad had dates the night before and so 
hadn't gotten around to getting the 

lesson done. No questions 

;,. See how it works? You know your 
Stuff. Then you go to Class A. Prefer 
peace to cerebration? Class C for you. 

And so on. 

8. Of course, some sort of attendance 
system would have to be worked out 

with minimum and maximum allowances 
for each division; and a time-clock 
system for attendance; and a lot of other 
incidental details. 

7. How about that as a cut-system 
substitute? Or not so good? 


Campus Tragedies 

1. He thought he'd sleep a minute more: 
Why do they lock the chapel door? 

2. The minutes went, no Prof did come; 
A bolt? He came! 9:.">l! 

There is an uncomfortable amount of 
truth behind the cynical saying of 
England's gloomy Dean, that "the prac 

tice and theory of government the-. 
days is divided between sociologi-t- 
who have knowledge and no power and 
politicians who have power and no 

knowledge.'' In France, England and 

America we find a di-tru-t of politicians; 
and yet if a country really di-tru-t- it 
politicians and ha- no faith in political 
method-, i- it not, con-ci.iu-lv or tin 

consciously, standing on the brink <>i 
despair? It is not without grave reason 
that democracy baa come to compan) 
with despair, but it is ■ sorry sight to 
see. The truth is that the problems of 
democrac) ere fust different forms of the 
eternal problem ol government. The first 
necessity to the solution of the problem, 

however, lies in a frank recognition ol the 

fallacies that underlie our current methoda 

of thought and action. 

The first intolerable I'allacv about de- 
mocracy is that men are ralioiial being-. 

It used to be taught that men were 
completely rational and that other ani- 
mals were completely instinctive. It the 
history ol the last ten years i- to be read 
a- the history of completely rational 

beings, then either the word rational bee* 

all meaning or else history become- an 

intolerable enigma; WC have behaved like 

savage beasts. We are born reasoning, 

which i- a very different thing from being 
bom rational. It is fairly easy to l>< 
rational on a subject that does not involve 
the emotions, but unfortunately those 
are the subjects which are concerned 
mainly with the ab-tia. I at iciue-. Politi- 
cal subjects rially involve the emotion-, 
and it is extremely difficult to form I 
really rational Judgment upon such live 
issues. Rationality, in the case of ques- 
tions involving the emotions, entails, 
above all . ■!-<■, I -ynthe-i- and subli- 
mation of the impulses and instincts 
that tend to group them-elve- about our 
e xp eriences Religion is just such a 
sublimation and for this reason ration 
ality must have a religious basis. Ina- 
much as democracy is po ssi ble <nly insofar 
a- men are rational, anil rationality i- 
possible only insofar as men are religious, 
therefore the great necessity of democracy 
is a true religion, which is precisely what 
our modern democracies imagine they can 
dispense with. 

The secontl intolerable fallacy is that 
we ordinary people are able to get at 
true facts on which to base our tlecisions 
upon the many difficult question* of I 
political nature that are submitted to us. 
This is obviously untrue. The main 
source of our facts is the public pre--. 
and the facts which it professes to give 
us are difficult to collect and difficult to 
set forth with tlue balance and proportion. 
They are dependent for their veracity 
upon reporters and editors who depend 
for their living upon advertisements, 
which depend on the interest of the public, 
which depentls upon Cod knows what. 
Nations' ideas of one another are usually 
fictions which bear little likeness to the 
fact. But the actions which take place 
in response to these fictions operate and 
produce effects in the world of facts, with 
disastrous results. This is the history of 
1914-1924 in a nutshell. It has been a 
bloody and barbarou- comedy of errors. 
Democracy cannot exist unless it clean-. * 
and clarifies the sources of public infor- 

The third intolerable fallacy is that 
We are governed by politicians. The truth 
is that we are governed by the holder- of 
the money power. Real power has passed 
into the hands of the banker and the 
financial ring. The situation is naked in 

Germany, where the government is mani- 
festly unable to control what are called 
the Industrialists. The Prime Minister 
of Fngland will be able to proceed on the 
path of reform just as far as the City <>l 
London will Itt him. and not one step 
further. If the influence of finance upon 
American politics is practically negligible, 
the doings of Mr. Fall are an unpleasant 

The three great problems of democracy 
then, boil down to this: How are we to

cleverly arranged. But I his is in no w 
a refutation of their essential truth. Th( 
were taken from the Sept. -Oct. is 

of "The Searchlight" on Congrt 

from the Dec. 10, l'.HU i.-uc of "I 

Nation"; being the result of persona] 
investigation on the part of the auth. 
oi the articles and more especially ti 
the undisputed "Report of the ("iti 
Committee". The) stand today undeni 
by Mr. Coolidge and unrefuted by an; 
of his supporter-. They show conclusive! 
that Coolidge's reputation is baaed on 


It was the duty of the ( '.ovcrnor to 
protect the people of bo-ton. to removi 
hi- subordinate if need be to do thi- 

I he "Report of the t iti/.n'- I oininitt. . 
clearly -how- that Coolidge failed ab* to do his duty in this respect. 

The "nigger ill I lie wood pile" -eem- i 
have ben the iinioni/.at ion of the*Polio 
and it- possible effect upon the werken 

throughout the country. There is evidenn 
that the whole incident was engineered tl 

stigmatise union ism in the minds of th 
people and help the Open Shoppers break 

the unions. The lawyer who advised 

Commissioner Curtis, and probably Gov 

Coolidge, is well known as a rcprc-cntativ. 
of Several of the big trusts. Whether or 
not Coolidge was part to the plot i- BOt 

so important as the fact that he evidently 
followed the advice of his "Big Business 

friends and helped break the Policemen - 
Union. Thia was evidently part "of I 

nation ends program". It la thia apparent 

willingness on the part of Mr. Coolidge 
to follow the advice of his "Big Bu-inc - 
friend- which leads the U. S. ChamlHi ol 

Commerce to endorse him as "safe". Th* 

sooner we all realize the significance d 
Mr. Coolidge's aiding in our exploitation. 
;lu sooner WO can intelligently set about 

freeing our at Ivan. 

If the "silent man" has such moral 
calibre and splendid courage, why did it 
take a righteously indignant public 
opinion to force him to dismiss the oil 
thieves from his cabinet? Mr. CooUdge 
was present in the Senate in April 1922 
when the illegal character of the oil 
leases was exposed. He was present in 
cabinet meetings when these were di- 
I u— ed and did not protest. A- Presideni 

he endeavored to prevent the ex|>osal oi 
official corruption, which unbiased ob- 
servers declare to fat the worst in the 
history of the country. Here was a great 
task to lie per f ormed in the interest of tin- 
people. A man of real moral calibre and 
courage would have "cleaned house" ami 

appealed to the country to support a 

program for clean, honest government. 
Mr. Coolidge failed in this great duty. 

And why? The answer seems to be that 

he is not big enough for the job. 
btaof Bill Hard's calibre say that Cooudgi 
is a "pitifully small man" whom the 
newspapers, in their attempt to sell cop, 
have grossly niisrei.res.nted. These m. :: 

say he has the ability >.f ■ -mall city 

politician. He ha- not the ability to ade- 
quately fill the Presidency. Hi- to 

has shown that much. 

I say these things not in any spirit ol 

bittern.-- or rancor. 1 sav them Ik. 
the facts have not ben allowed to " 

the public. The newspapers have ai 

the politician- in perpetrating a giganti 

fraud upon the American jnople. I 
have been duped. When th. y realise 
extent of the outrage, there is bound 
b. a great change. But let us hope 
this awakening will be gradual and will 
lead to gradual evolution of a i 
Christian order of society.

Nutmegfters Prove Too Heavy for 
I ight Short Course Men In Their 
I ast Game. 

The Two Year football team was 
defeated 19 to 0, last Wednesday after- 
noon by the Conn. Aggie freshman squad 
on Alumni Field. The "Agricultural 
Blues" played an excellent game but 
they were outweighed twelve pounds to 

.i man. 

The ball was near the middle of the 
field during most of the game. In the 
st . ond quarter, Connecticut punted from 
deep in their territory to their forty 
\ar.l line where Truelson fumbled. The 
ball was recovered by l.ogan who rated 
sixty yards for a touchdown. In the 
third quarter, the visitors scored twice 
more when Williams broke through for a 
fifty and a forty yard run. In the last 
quarter, the "Blues" outrushed their 
opponents and let them have the ball but 


1 his game marks the end of the pleural 
Two Year football season. This has 
proved to be the best one for several 
yean and Coach Ball is well satisfied with 
the results. The team has developed into 
i lighting unit which has bad Ixith kinds 
ol luck. Captain Pickard was the out- 
-i.m.ling individual on the squad but he 
was unable to play* in two ganus liecause 
ol a serious leg injury. Desrosiers, Tribe,

been conspicuous by their frequent

Extensive Field Work the 
Best Laboratory 

Tf TITH all the ingenuity and effort of the most 
W exacting engineers, even of the competent, re- 
sourceful men who design Case machines, no machine 
ever reaches the highest state of development until 
it has been used extensively in field work. 

•See here, old man, where is that good 

looking stenographer you had last week?" 

"She caught me kissing my wife and 

left without notice." 

"Film Fun," New York. 







The reason is obvious. The best laboratory and 
experimental field tests known furnish only limited 
opportunities for improvement as compared to the 
infinite variety of conditions met with in extensive 
field operation. 

Here again, this Company is fortunate. We have 
thousands of machines in operation, in every civilized 
country en the globe. Every condition of soil, crop . 
power, weather, climate and handling is represented 
in field reports on the operation of Case machines. 

We maintain a department for the monthly classi- 
fication and analysis of the accurate information 
contained in these reports. This system enables 
Case engineers to proceed with certainty toward 
refinements far in advance of the ordinary. This is 
why Case machines meet so successfully all the 
requirements of profitable farming.

By bringing electricity down from the clouds

to prove that lightning was nothing more 
than a tremendous electrical flash. 

For centuries before Franklin flew his kite 
in 1751 philosophers had been speculating 
about the nature of lightning. With elec- 
trified globes and charged bottles, others had 
evolved the theory that the puny sparks of 
the laboratory and the stupendous phenom-

Franklin substituted fact for theory — by

Editor-in-Chief, Managing Editor and

lames CaiTUtherS Creenough was born 
in Wendell. Mass., on August 1">, 1829, 
descendant of an old English family. He 
u,is educated in the common schools ol 
Wendell ami of Portland, Maim-, and 
attended later New Salem, liernardston 

and rieeraeM Academies. He was ■ 

Student at the State Normal School at 
Westlield during the spring of 1N.>4 before 
diplomas were awarded. 

He was principal of grammar schools 

in Salem and Gl o uc es te r, Mass.. and be- 
came first assistant principal of the State 

Normal School at Westfield in 1886, and

Hccause of difficulties with the system 

of control, George W. Hanscomb '-•"». 
editor-in-chief, and Mary T. Boyd '88, 

managing editor of the Aggie Squih, have 
tendered their resignations. \ easev Peine 
'25, business manager of tin- ■ante publi- 
cation, has left cottage, thus leaving his 
position also vacant. 

Under the present ■yetern, the editor- 
in chief has no control over the business 
department, and so when the business 

department failed to do its accessary share 

of the work this fall, the editor-in-chief 
was powerless. A lack of co-operation 

From the Academic Activities Board 

helped to make matters worse, and the 
result was that no Squib appeared. A* i 
protest against this most inefficient sys- 
tem, the editor-in-chief and managing 
editor resigned.

The fruit judging and packing teams 
added to their victories of last year all 
honors in the competitions with other 
New England colleges which were held on 
the campus Saturday in conjunction with 
the pomology show. In the New England 
Fruit Judging Contest the Aggie team 
easily won first place, with a More of I7!>1 
against Maine with 17L".I and Rhode 
Island with 1870 points. In this competi- 
tion the three highest individual scores 
were made by Samuel W. I.unt, Andrew 
W. Love and Herbert F. Bartlett, all of 
Massachusetts Aggie. The packing team 
made an average score of S(i^ against 
Maine with 7S,. Miss Emily Smith made 
the highest individual score in pa cking, 
with an average of W,. < .onion II. Ward 
and Andrew W. Love made second and 
third highest individual scores, giving 
Massachusetts the first three places in 
this contest. 

The feature of the exhibition of fruit 
in the Drill Hall was a gnat bank of dark 
red apples on which a large "M" was 
formed by light-green colored apples. 
This exhibit was the work of the seniors. 
Other exhibits were a display of (aimed 
fruits and vegetables by seniors in the 
horticultural manufacturers course, and 
comparisons between New England grown 
apples and others of the same varieties.

women who are going to college at the 
present time. "All the students that I 
know are inter-deiiominationalists," the 
speaker remarked, revealing an optimistu 

vie w p o int. 

In proof of his belief of a coming break. 
Mr. Cilkey cited an hsstsncf ol a meeting 
in Springfield ol laymen and pastors to 
discuss the lederation of churches. The 

eleven laymen voted solidly for federation. 

while the three preachers present voted 

solidly against it. "The break with tin- 
old svstem is much nearer than you 
think" said the speaker. 

Dr. (.ilkey advanced three reasons for 
the federation of churches; economic 
changes of the last few years, the revela- 
tion to all America of the weaknesses of 
competitive sectarianism, and the broader 
field which the church can reach through 
the radio. It ought to be evident to 

e v ery o ne that one good church in a town 
or city is better than two |>oor ones. 

Dr. Oilkey admitted that it would be 
impossible to get everyone into one 
denomination, but he predicted that 
within the next fifty years, the lilxrals 
of all churches would lie brought together 
into one community church. He thought 
there were three steps neressary to bring 
about the change, the immediate feder- 
ation of churches within existing deiiomi 
national lines, the joining together as 
fast as possible of all the churches in 
country communities, and eventually the 
reorganization of all present denomination

Are We At the Top? 

With the lust football season which an 
Aggie nam has been through sinee 1901 
behind us, it is only tiding that we review, 
or stop a lew minutes to consider the- 
work of this aggregation and try to realise 
in a way at least what their achievements 
have meant to the college. 

We say that it was the best season since 
IB01, but that is on a basis of the number 
of games won. The team of year 
played a schedule of nine games, winning 
eight and losing one. If we take into 
account the fact that the game itself has 

become more highly de v e l o p ed, that the 

method of play is vastly different . and that 
opponents vary from year to year, it does 
not seem impractical to state that the 
team which bore Aggie's colors in 10SM set 
up a record which has never been equaled. 
It has been shown that over a number 
of years, various enterprises will continue 
in cydea, which simply means that, in 
the case of football for example, a period 
will be spent in gradually climbing to the 
peak or apex of the cycle, and another 

period will be required, following a gradual 

slump, to reach another high point. There 
are records to prove that such a situation 
is present at Aggie, and while it is seeming- 
ly apparent that the top of the cycle has 
been very nearly reached, there is reason 
to suppose that next year may be one 
notch higher, or prove the turning point. 
Many are contented to sit back and 
hope that next year will Kea MSHI1 which 
even surpasses the superb record of the 
1984 eleven, but these men will in no way- 
aid in accomplishing such an occurrence. 
It is the men who don the moleskins and 
endure the hard knocks on the field, 
whether members of the first, second or 
third teams, who will have an important 
part in deciding the outcome of the 1925 

The fact that the season just past was 
so successful is all the more remarkable 
when one considers the •quad from which 
the first team had to be picked. With 
often barely enough men to form th ret- 
full teams, and in many cases using varsity- 
material where there should have been 
scrubs, we have every reason to heartily 
congratulate the nun who so willingly 
offered their services, whether \aisit> 
men or scrubs, that their college might 
enjoy the glory and honor of a place at 
the top of her class. 

It cannot be denied that we all respond 
in some degree to a little personal glory- 
once in a while, but this was not, and 
rightly, the prime factor in attracting 
men to take up this game of all games. 
Many played for the first time in college 
and some had always played it. but in 
both (lasses there were men who had to 
learn to like it. These men are the ones 
who, once they reach the stage where it 
is play and not work are the onccs from 
whom the most may be expected. There 
were men who played on the IBM team 
who had never played the game before 
coming to college, and if a biography of 
the team and the work of each man were 
written, it might be seen that their 
efforts were invaluable, and that they 
were in a large measure responsible for 
the excellent record of the fall just passed. 
This editorial is an appeal to the men of 
Aggie, that next year's season may be 
even better than this year's, and that 
M.A.C. may be again on top. 

Now, The Next Thing! 

' the name and fame of our college 

i> spreading; slowly but surely over the 

lUtC and the nation and that the college's 

advertising, unintended and unknown 
though much of it maybe, is effective, 
hi evidenced by the number of gilts made 

to the college recently, and still more by 
the fad that most of the recent gifts 
have been by others than those people 
who are directly interested in the college 
through personal contact. 

On the first page of this issue is the 
story of the latest of the bequests to the 
college, 126,000 approximately, given as 
the residue of the estate of Mr. I'orter 

I.. Newton of Wakham. This la tee fourth 

gift made to the college during the past 
twelve months. We sincerely hope that 
others will follow in order as friends ol 
agriculture in various parts of the country 
pass away. The fact that this is a state 
institution does not alter the truth that 
it is an expensive proposition to go to 
college, and the more funds there are left 
to the college, the more scholarships then- 
are that can be founded to help the college 
to more efficiently do its duty to the state 
which it endeavors to serve. 

We need funds to found scholarships, 
but there is something we need fully as 
much, which we at present have but slight 
prospects of getting, new buildings. 
Would that some kind benefactor would 
endow the college to the extent of a new 
building for one of its many depart meats! 
We need a new gymnasium, a new library, 
and new buildings for the departments of 
mathematics and physics. How are we to 
get these, to say nothing of a modern 
administration building and a dormitory 
in which to house our freshmen.-' 

The state has just given us a chemist ry 
laboratory of which the college may well 
be proud, but how soon will the solons in 
boston see fit to erect another new build- 
ing on the campus? Soon, we hope, but 
when they do, the structure will doubtless 
be a gymnasium and drill hall. We need 
that, but a need that is equally imperative 
is that of a larger and more modern build- 
ing for our library. Any of you who have 
had occasion to use the present library 
much during the past few years, and 
especially during the past year, will 
fully appreciate the need. 

There must be some person or persons 
who have more money than they need or 
at least more than their relatives will 
aeed when they pass away, who would 
be willing to give us a new library. A 
gymnasium would be a very expensive 
proposition for one person to give, but 
to what better use could a man leave his 
dollars than to provide a new and up-to- 
date library to serve the state through 
helping to train its youth in the state 

Four or five years ago the alumni of 
the college went deep into their own 
pockets to pay for the erection of a social 
center for the college in memory of their 
comrades who gave their lives in the war. 
Is there not some friend of the college who 
will give a memorial library to the college 
as a tribute to some loved one.-' There 
must be one somewhere. Will you not do 
yoUff part to help find him?

can flraw a lesson of value to every under- 
graduate. Me thought enough of his 
college to sacrifice time, money and 
energy thai she might take her place ill 
the athletic world. 

We take off our hats to "Pop". 



The Cut System Again 

Said a very wise- man, "One man's meat 
is another man's poison". 

Very true. My way of listening to 
lectures is your way of flunking the 
course. YOU take- copious notes; I take 
very few. You listen best in an attitude 
of attention, alert, obviously interested; 
I listen best lazily leaning back, apparently 

Lectures are at best a means of incul- 
cating necessary information into more or 
less receptive brains. To get the most out 
of a course, you attend every lecture and 
follow carefully the outlined notes. I, on 
the contrary, attend but seldom, interest- 
ing myself in outside reading and original 
research. Who shall say that I get more 
out of the course than you, or you than I? 
Each according to our own needs, we use 
the course. 

I think it may be taken for granted that 
we are at college because we wish to 
learn. We learn best, as has been shown, 
each in our own way. Should we not, 
therefore, be allowed to take a course- 
under such conditions as will permit a 
mastery of the subject offered in the way 
best suited to ourselves? 

The unlimited cut system provides such 
Opportunities, Under it, the student 
attends such lectures as he feels necessary 
to a full understanding of the subject 
which be is studying. And he works harder 
than under the present system, for failure 
to understand implies a like failure to 
obtain a passing grade, which is, after all, 
only an indication of understanding. 

The unlimited cut system for M.A.C! 
It is well worth a trial, at least.

Aggie's Grand Old Man 

There is an old saying that we never 
appreciate a man until he has gone, and 
we usually associate this meaning with the 
death of the individual, but the man who 
is the subject of this word of praise is 
gone, but far from dead. And also in 
direct antithesis to the old saying he 
was appreciated even before he was gone 
from our midst. Me is "Pop" (lark. 

It is only in rare cases where one will 
find an instance to equal that of Mr. Clark, 
who returned to this campus after many 
years in a business career, to take an 
active interest in, and assist in coaching 
a winning football aggregation at his 
Alma Mater. To give up his work in 
order that he might offer his services 
meant a great sacrifice, and is one indi- 
cation of the true loyalty which sooner or 
later brings many Aggie grads back to 
the campus which they learned to love 

so well. 

True, he coached team C, which many 
may regard as a lowly position, but when 
one considers that it was team C which 
made the varsity, then much of the credit 
of a successful season rightly goes to this 
elderly gentleman, well along in years, 
but who was not so old but what he could 
thow the boys a few things, and form 
an integral part of the staff of men- 
tors who without any question turned out 
the best football team which Aggie has 
ever known. 

From the untiring efforts of this grand 
old man who we all knew as "Pop" we 

The Deed is Done 

At last it appears that an attempt is 
being made to obtain at least one cultural 
course, which this paper has for years 
past so strongly advocated The fact 
that a petition for such a course has 
already been put into circulation is an 
indication not only that articles which 
have appeared in these columns from time 
to time are nearer to bearing fruit than 
ever before, but there are a number of 
students on the campus who have realized 
the neetl for such a course, and have 
taken immediate steps for the inauguration 
of the same. 

It is understood that a man on the 
campus, well qualified to instruct along 
this line, has signified his willingness to 
give a course which, in the case of any 
man taking it "would increase his capacity 
for enjoying the pleasures of a higher 
type, make life more worthwhile, and 
increase his happiness and contentment." 
That such a course could be given without 
added expense to the institution, and that 
B large number of men would avail them- 
selves of this opportunity ". . . sO that 
they might not be compelled to leave this 
institution profoundly ignorant of matters 
pertaining to the higher things of life 
which distinguish a person of culture and 
refinement from one lacking in these 
qualities," is a proven fact. 

It is our sincere hope that the authori- 
ties will see fit to honor this petition, and 
we feel that in so doing they will not only 
satisfy the desires of a group of men, but 
they will take a great step forward along 
educational lines.

We're never any too enthusaistic about 
getting up in time for chapel Monday 
mornings, but the bit of news we had 
sprung on us this last time would have 
compensated for a chapel at 5.30 instead 
of 7.30.

Question: Would a Prohibition agent 
approve of the sort of weather we have 
been having lately? 
It's anything but dry! 
Still, snow, slush, rain, and all the 
other forms of the w.k. "Precipitated 
moisture" we learned about in Frosh 
cheat have one great advantage in 
common and for us: 

Snow may be wet and slippery, but it 
doesn't leave your collar looking like the 
coal heaver's little brother's last Sunday 
shirt ; and if it rains hard enough to calm 
the campus cinders (they are the most 
abnormally and precociously active cin- 
ders we've ever met!) your hands don't — 
or won't — be mistaken for detached 
sections of the Agronomy Dept. 

If cleanliness is really next to godliness, 
we're much better in the winter than any- 
other time! 


However — 


Certain students of this institution 

The Landscape Department is showing 
an exhibit of cubist art loaned by the 
Millyer Art Gallery of Smith College. 
This exhibit now on view in Wilder Hall 
is aniinly of small reproductions from the 
work of the famous Picasso, Picabia and 
Lyonel Feiniger. It represents the most 
advanced ideas in its field and ought to 
give those who see it some idea of what the 
radicals are try ing to do. 



Desiring that the students of the 
college might enjoy their avction to 
the utmost, the faculty decided to 
wish us all a Happy New Year by- 
adding three days to our Christmas 
vacation and letting us stay home 
until New Year's Day. College will 
not open until January 2, instead of 
starting again on December 30 as the 
college calendar states. But don't 
forget to get back Thursday night! 

(that always sounds like a jail or a re- 
formatory to us, but all our best speakers 
call us that, so it's probably all right) 
think that this matter of the winter 
ground covering is worthy of lyrical 
comment. Now we believe in a free voic- 
ing of student opinion at all times on all 
matters, so we take great pleasure in 
presenting to our readers the following 
bit of co-operative verse. Lathes and 
gentlemen, we have with us today two 
poets hitherto unknown to our columns. 
We sincerely hope their first appearance 
will not be their last. (Applause.) 
Very well, let's go! 

Concerning Winter 

The winter fast is drawing nigh, 
And all the hirels begin to tly. 
It won't be long before the snow 

Begins to Hurry and to blow. 
I like to ski, and slide, and skate: 

I think the winter sports are great; 
But when there's crust, and I fall down 
I sure do miss the old hare ground.

Study and Outside Activities 

Peacc-U 1 seclusion and scholastic quiet 
are no longer characteristic of our insti- 
tutions of learning. The American college 
of today hai hc-come such a whirlwind 
center of outside activities— social, ath- 
letic-, musical, religious, journalistic, dra- 
matic that the casual observer, looking 
on from the outside, Cannot see "where 
the studying comes in", and many who 
left home to obtain a college education 
are led by campus pressure to substitute 
for it a varied assortment of courses in 
college life. To those who are seriously 
seeking a solution to the problem, t he- 
following suggestions are offered. They 
have been found to meet the situation 
wherever the requisite wisdom and will- 
power are found. 

Systematize your daily program of 
work and play. Time is your most 
valuable possession. By utilizing for 
study the odd half and quarter hours now 
wasted you can probably save an hour 
each day for outside activities and recre- 
ation. Have a daily program and the back- 
bone to stick to it. Never drift through a 
day. Drive your ship of life under its 
own steam along a self-chosen course 
towards some definite goal regardless of 
wind or tide. Cultivate promptness and 
quick decision even in the smallest 
matters. 1 K-spise dawdling over anything, 
and shun the habit of postponement as 
you would a loathsome disease. Take a 
savage pleasure in doing the things you 
hate to do but know you ought to do. In 
short, organize, systematize and speed up 
your daily routine and you will double 
your legitimate pleasure, without in the 
least diminishing your daily output of 
regular work. 

Limit your outside activities, and be 
wise enough and strong enough to cut out 
purposeless loafing and useless recreations. 
Such indoor sedentary recreations as 
chest, cards, pool, picture shows and novel 
reading may be suitable for other people, 
but for a student in college, they are a 
pure waste of time. Outdoor competitive 
sports will bring many times the dividends 
for the time invested. 

Do not make the common and harmful 
mistake of joining too many organizations 
Investigate the merits of each. Some 
minister to childish vanity but are devok 
of real campus value; some are merely 
time wasters; some are harmful, and still 
others are of great benefit if wisely- 
utilized. In general, choose both your 
recreations and organizations with refer- 
ence to their real and permanent value in 
your own all-round development and 
future welfare, rather than their present 
pleasantness or temporary value. 

Learn to study always with white hot 
concentration. This will not only develop 
mental power now undreamed of, but will 
enable you to do your work in half the 
time, thus solving the probl e m of securing 
success in study and ample time for out- 
side activities. Try these suggestions: 

Make your surroundings favorable to 
intense undivided concentration during 
your chosen time of study. If you cannot 
do this, have wisdom and backbone 
enough to seek a more favorable location. 
Invent and adopt methods of stimulat- 
ing your concentration. Study in compe- 
tition with others. With your watch open 
before you, study against time. In study- 
ing, read a paragraph with intense atten- 
tion, then spend the same number of 
minutes with your eyes shut, recalling 
every word of it. Try a mercilessly applied 
system of rewards and punishments, 
forcing yourself to earn such recreations 
as shows, trips and social pleasures, and 
penalizing yourself for neglected duties, 
failures and wasted time. 

And finally, learn to concentrate your 
attention on a subject as a matter of will 
power, regardless of its intrinsic interest 
or attractiveness. Until you can do this 
you will still have the mind of a child 
whatever your appearance, age or college- 
degrees. This ability to control the atten- 
tion is at once the chief end of all college- 
training and its most accurate measure. 
It is the infallible sign of mental maturity, 
the stepping stone to intellectual power, 
and the surest guarantee of future success. 
To master a distasteful study by sheer 
power of will is the most valuable exercise 
in your whole college curriculum.

A Scientific System of 

ALL true progress comes through gradual develop- 
ment. Compare the automobiles, telephones 
or threshing machines of twenty five years ago with 
the highly efficient product of today. Better work 
and longer life for euch machine bus resulted in every 
case from intelligent, consistent development. 

The development of any machine depends, first, 
upon the ideals and ability of the designers and 
builders and, second, upon the data available- and 
the method of its use. This Company is except ion 
ally fortunate in both these respects. Our engineers 
are admittedly competent and resourceful. They 
have devised a system for securing accurate, definite 
information about the operation of Case machines 
under the infinite variety of conditions met in ex- 
tensive field work. 

As it comes in, this information is classified, tabu- 
lated and charted every month. It is studied care- 
fully for any indication of desirable improvements 
in design, material or construction. This is the 
scientific system of development incorporated in the 
Case Engineering Code that has carried Case prod- 
ucts forward to leadership in usefulness and econ-

Co-Ed Cabaret 
Is a Big Success 

Annual Affair Proves even More 
Popular than was Last Year's Party. 

The second annual Cabaret given by the 
co-eds took place in the Memorial Build- 
ing last Saturday evening from seven- 
thirty until eleven, and was a great 
success. Seventy-five couples attended. 
The chaperons were Prof, and Mrs. 
Strahan and Mr. ami Mrs. Ilanna. 
Parker's orchestra furnished the music. 

The cabaret was held on the first lloor 
of the Memorial Building, which was 
decorated for the occasion with gold and 
with silver balloons. lUtween the enter 
tainments, there was dancing, which took 
piace on the upper tloor. The first act on 
the program was "Intelligence Tests", at 
which Marguerite Bosworth *-'»> assisted. 
There were four other numbers: I clown 
dance by Rebecca Merryman, Two Year 
'25; Crinoline Days by Kvelyn Davis '26: 
the Duncan Sisters, Marian Cassidy '2(i 
and Margaret Shea *26 and the < '.inghain 
('.iris, a dance in which eight girls took 
part. Then came the "Surprise", which 
proved to be a Christmas tree and presents 
for all the guests. The cabaret was the 
occasion for the issuing of a humorous

Students Read 


If you do, surely you 
'will read this one 

One fine day a Sophomore from a leading Univer- 
sity came to see us, suggesting that we advertise in 
their undergraduate paper, and best of all convinced 
us, and this is how he did it: 

First — He believed in Life Insurance because his 

uncle (a good business man) had advised him to 

buy some. 

Second— His Father died in the prime of life and 

good health and left almost no insurance, when 

he could have carried $50,000. 

Third— He also knew that he could buy Insurance 

NOW at half the annual cost his uncle and 

Father had paid for theirs. 

All this convinced him that even though a student, 
he should take out as much Life Insurance as his 
allowance would permit. 

What About You? 

Every college student looks forward to a career, 
which will make possible the fulfillment of the most 
cherished desires — surely Insurance is a necessary 
part of this program. 

Insure, in part at least the value of your educated 
self, NOW, making up your mind to increase it as 
business or professional success follows. 

The John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Com* 
pany issues all forms of Life Insurance, endowments 
for home and estate protection, mortgage replace- 
ment, education of children, bequest or income for 
old age; also annuities and permanent disability. The 
John Hancock is particularly interested in insuring 
college men and women and obtaining college grad- 
uates for the personnel of the field staff.

When You Qet Back Home 

for the Christmas holidays, you'll want 
to compare the home methods of farnv 
ing with those you have been taught at 
college. Notice especially how they feed 
the cows. 

If Diamond Corn Gluten Meal is not being 
fed, suggest it to your father or whomever is in 
charge. Ask him to start on a small quantity, 
feeding it to only two or three good cows, with 
bran, a little oilmeal and his homegrown oats. 
And ask him to keep you posted on results. 

IN about a month you'll get a report — it never

In the third quarter Tubs attempted 

field goals twice, one from thirty yardl 
and the other from forty-three, which 
both failed. It was in this period that 
McC.eoch broke away for a 17-yard gain 

through tackle, but this added yardage 
failed to incite the tm senary spurt for ■ 

winning touchdown. A forward pas^. 
Sullivan to Jones, also netted a substantial 
gain of twelve yards, but it came at I 
time when it was of no particular benefit. 
The fourth period was a repetition of 
the third, neither team being able to 
break the tie. 

As for the outstanding stars, there was 
one man on each team who te emed to 
excel as the ones who were particularly 
responsible for the dead-Uxk. For Aggie 
little "Joe" Hilyard, as has been men-

wiili higfa honors in 1800. While Si 

West field be helped greatly in developing 
the natural and heuristic method of teach- 
ing, which h;i> noce been adopted si 
Bridgewater Normal School, and most of 
the other normal schools in the state. 

He was married in ISliO to the oldest 

daughter of Hon. Wm, <•- Bates of West 


Mr. Greeaough declined opportunities 

In become principal of normal schools in 
Connecticut and Kansas, but in 1S7I he 

accepted the principaUhip of the newly 
established Rhode Island State Normal 
School at Providence, and served well in 

that position for twelve years, resigning 

it to accept the presidency of the Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College at Amherst. 
Mr. Greeaough was awarded the degree 

of master of arts in 1873 by Williams 

College and in 1876 by Brown University. 

While in Providence he was elected a 
member of the Brown I nivcrsity chapter 
of Phi Beta Kappa, the honorary scholas- 
tic society and also chosen as an honorary 
alumnus of the university, and one of its 
examiners. In 1889 he was given the 

degree of doctor of letters by Beres 

College, Kentucky, at which he taught 
lor awhile. 

The three and a half years adminis- 
tration of President < Ire-enough at the 

Massachusetts Agricultural Col l ag e was 

one of progress. The standard of s ch ola r - 

■hip was raised; the course of study was 
extended; new bu i l d i n gs were erected, 
and extensive repairs were carried out on 
North College, one of the dormitories. 

Under his administration, the legisla- 
ture nave *!(),(KH) to the college and NO 

scholarships were established in IK,x:{. The 

drill hall Was com p l ete d ami Mr. Leamler 
WetheraH of Boston gave the college 1410 
bound volumes and several hundred 
pamphlets for the library. In 1.KX4 the 
legislature gave $36,000 for the erection 
of a chapd and library building, the 
completion of the President's Mouse, and 
repairs on the North Dormitory. The 
repairs were made and the construction 
of the library started, the corner stone 
laid on November li of that year. The 
building was constructed of granite from 
a quarry in I'elham owned by tin- college 
and at the time was one of the finest 
buildings on the ca mpu s. 

In February 1885, the South Dormitory 
was destroyed by fin-, and PiessJeui 
Greenough won from the legislature the 
following June an appropriation of $46,000 

lor rebuilding the dormitory, and erecting 
a tower on the chapel. The chapel SJSS 
remodeled -lightly and during i he summer 
the President's House was completed 
with much of the planning done by Presi- 
dent Greenough'l wife, and the library 
had several additions made to it. Presi 
dent G r eea oug h was one of the mosl 

valuable men the college has had for he 

did much toward its advancement during 
his short term of office. 

Dr. Greenough resigned early in 1887 to 
become principal of the State Normal 
School at West field, a position which he 
tilled admirably for ten years. He retired

done much for the cause of education in 

the Middlesex County Farm Bureau and

means of making his interest of perma-

The gift just made is the fourth that 
has Come to the college during the past 
year. Last spring two gifts were made to 
the college, the first a betpicst of 825,000 
from the estate of Winthrop Murray 
Crane, former governor of the state and 
United States Senator, a gift, the income 
Of which is lo be used for scholarships. At 

almost the same time 11000 was presented 

to the college by the Massachusetts 

Association for the Advancement of 

Agriculture, to be used outright in pro- 
viding scholarships for students majoring 
in either agriculture or horticulture. 

Largest of the bequests ever made to 
the college is that by Miss Lot ta Crabtree, 
the well-known actress, who died a short 
time ago. The residue of her estate was 
left to the college and will probably S* 
mount to over a million dollars. It will 
be used to found the Lotta Educational 
Fund, the income of which will be used 
to provide help for students who wish to 
get start e.l in business after they graduate 
trom the college, and possibly to found a 
lew scholarships for undergraduates. 

The many gifts recently made indicate 
the appreciation of the people of the state 
for the work of the college, and college 
authorities hope that they are but the 
beginning of large endowments which 
will make the college even more efficient 
in training the youth of the state tor 
Whatever line of work they are best 
fitted for. ___

"Stick in the Mud" to Offer Several 
Specialty Acts. 

Rehearsals for the Christian Asso.i- 
at ion play "Slick in the Mud", which 
will Ik- given in the Town hall on Tuesday, 
January 20, are now under way. This 
year's show is based upon the difficulties 
of managing a theatrical agency and 
consists of several specialty acts. "Red" 
Parker's Orchestra will furnish the musical 
part of the program and in their socially 
numbers have a chance to "do their stuff". 

The following teams were- chosen from 
the personnel of the MAC. varsity toot 
ball team and its opponen t s. The Aggie 
players selected were chosen on the 
merit of their form during the entire 
sc.ison, the other selections, on their 
performance in a single game against 
M.A.C. The Collegian was assisied in 
its choice of opposing players by the 
veterans of the '24 team. 

A few words of explanation as to why 
these men have been chosen are |>cr!i.ips 
necessary. Dunlap of Norwich was 
chosen end because of his aggressiveness, 
lie kling, and s|>ccd. While he only played 
one half against M.A.C., he proved so 
effective that very few gains were made 
around his end. The other end, Jones of 
M.A.C., is a logical because of his offensive- 
ability and his phenomenal talent in 
kicking goals. The t.ukle-s, Davis of 
Amherst and Molter of Norwich, are big, 

strong, heady playeri and are the only 

ones encountered last season who were 

successful in checking the powei In I \L \.( '. 
olT-tackle play. The guards, Share of 
Tufts and Thurlow of MAC, would be 
the most powerful nie'ii on i In- team. IJoth 

have considerable ability and with Dunn 
of YVcslcyaii at eenliT would constitute- a 
central bulwark which would be nearly 

impenetrable, The backnetd would be- a 

Versatile OOC with Mill of Amherst, 
Howard of W'esleyan, and More land of 
Conn. Aggie for running backs and 
O'Neil cliietly for defensive purposes. 
Moieland is unusually adept in heaving 
forward passes and Hill would In- used 
as the punter. 

The central trio and the bac kticld of 
the second team, with the i-xevption of 

the quarterback, ranks nearly equal to 

the first team choice but these nun lack 
the weight and power of the- first string.

Alfred E. Stearns, principal of Phillips 
Academy, Andover, in his chapel talk 
last Sunday. Mr. Stearns gave one of 
the most interesting of the several chapel 
■r unout he has given here. 

"The Bible is a record of a nature con- 
stantly meeting with difficulties," s.iid 
Mr. Stearns. "Always there are present 
the struggles which individuals as well as 
nations must meet." He went on to say 
that all things made poss ffal s by science 
today are results of the work— the effort 
and painstaking toil of great men like 
Thomas Edison and Louis Pasteur. 
"The typical American business man is 
the one who by force exerted over diffi-

Over a hundred Extension and Club 
Workers were on the campus from Dec. 
15 to 19 to attend the program of the 
Tenth Annual Extension Conference. The 
most significant features of the program 
were lectures on educational problems by 
Dr. L. II. Kilpatrick of Columbia Univer- 
sity, on extension work by Dr. C. B. 
Smith of the U.S.D.A., the effect of 
European conditions on American farm- 
ing, by Professor E. G. Nourse of the 
Institute of Economics of Washington, 
and on developing a plan of work, by 
H. W. Hochbaum of the U. S. Extension 
Service. The owning addresses of the 
conference were by President Lewis, and 
Director Willard of the Extension Service. 
The time of the visitors was otherwise 
occupied by section meetings and lectures 
on topics of special interest. 


The football schedule for 1925 has been 
completed. There is one more game than 
there was during the season just com- 
pleted. A Thanksgiving day game has 
been arranged with Springfield College. 
This is not a new feature of the schedule, 
however, but a revival of a past event. 
It has been four years since we have 
played Springfield. Norwich has not 
played M.A.C. in Amherst for 
years. A new team has been 
however, in Lowell Textile. The schedule

Contrary to the usual order of scheduled 
games the varsity Iwsketball team is 
iiueling one of its strongest opponents in 
the initial game of the season Wednesday, 
January 7. The Aggie hoopsters have- 
several jioints of advantage over their 
fjpposMintl, < lark University, familiarity 
with the floor, four vi-ter.tns of the now 
famous 14 'earn in the lineup, and the 
desire to initiate the season with a victory 
being the most favorable. Yet the Clark 
quintet will not Ik- seriously handieap|>cel

veteran team and one which has already 
seen se-rvice this se-ason. Last yi-.u M.A.<

The outstanding player on the Clark 
team both physically and effectually is 
Kalijaivi, center, who Stands six !< •■ -t 
eight inches in his stocking feet. This is 
his third season of varsity basketball; he 
invariably gets the tap in the toss-up and 
is an excellent shot. Captain Towne has 
led the team for the past two seasons and 
is considered a clever strategist. From his 
position at left guard he controls both the 
offense and defense of his team. Higgin- 
bottom, called the best forward Clark has 
ever had, is the fastest man on the team 
and an accurate shot. 

The Agates have progressed rapidly in 
their preseasonal training period under 
Bike, captain of the '24 team, and they 
have reached a stage of proficiency nearly 
equal to their best form last year. Cap- 
tain Samuels and Temple have retained 
their shoorting ability, Jones's defensive 
work, especially under the basket, is as 
good as ever, Smiley's floor work and

Old But Always New 
With 1024 propert y IWJintfri into the 
past, and 1985 with us for a whole year, 
ii is altogether fitting and to be expected 
that the Collegian wishes its readers a 
prosperous, happy and eventful New t ear. 
All of this is customary, not new, and more 
or less unnecessary, but it is done, and 
we've done it. 

The fact that people who never do so 
Ihc rest of the year sit up on the Bight ot 
December Mist until they sec the New 
Yen in, with much jovially and careless 
abandon, at midnight is another custom, 
although this particular night is DO differ- 
est in reality than any of the other three 
hundred sixty-four. But way back in the 
dim past there was found a need for some 
division Of time whereby we might t.x 
the dates of Historical events, know when 
nun were bom, etc. So the phases of the 
planets, and oilier elements were taken 
into consideration, and the period known 
as the year came into being. 

As a result people have come to accept 
|anu..i\ 1st as the beginning of this new 
period, and accordingly make many, difficult to keep and easy to 
break, and straightway proceed to break 
them, following the linesol least resistance. 
But the passing of the old. and the in- 
auguration of the new has a significance 

both unique and impassive. New Year's 

EVC is accepted by every nation of the 
WOrM as the dividing point between the 
old year and the new, and time is reckoned 
accordingly. Leaving on a boat to lake a 
trip to Europe, one can figure the correct 
time of the correct day in which he will 
be in a foreign country providing, of 
course that all goes well enroute. Time is 
one thing accepted universally, and as 
such it is a common bond between 
peoples of the earth. 

If you are one of those individuals who 
can make a resolution at New Year's 
and keep it, why do you wait until then? 
And why is there need for any then, if 
you have made them day after day, for 
surely if you have the will-power to keep 
one at all, you make them constantly. To 
our way of thinking, anyone who makes a 
New Year's resolution is merely telling 
the world at large that he hasn't the 
ability to keep it, else he would have made 
it long before New Year's day,— and kept 
it. As you may have guessed, we do not 
believe in this particular kind of resolution. 
But we're not so hypocritical but that 
we can observe the customs of the times 
as well as the next firm believer in Santa 
Claus, and we do truly wish you all we 
said we did, and more. But we want you 
to know that we're not only wishing it 
because it is the proper time, but because 
we earnestly hope that this new division 
of the century which is now a reality, 
and which has been for nearly two thou- 
sand years a fantasy will be one in which 
you will realize your ambitions; that all 
that you wish to be, you will be; and that 
health, wealth and happiness will all 
bump into you are once, and keep bump- 
ing always. 

The best New Year's resolution is not 
to make any more. 

What is Success? 

What < on-lit litis SUCCCSS? The quest ion 

has be* n often uhed and often discussed, 
and the passing of one of the college's 

most faithful servants brings it up again. 

Mr. George Smith, shepherd of th<- 
college ftocki for a numher of yearn, has 

,li,. ( |, and v«t it is doubtful if more than 

a handful of the faculty and students 

knew of this fact. 

Mr. Smith was a man of such likable 
nature and genial dis|M>sition that he- made 
many friend" among I he fanners of t In- 
state who had occasion to come to the 

college at various times and among th< 
students of the college who took courses 
in agriculture and went to him for advice 

in the settlement of their problems. His 

place ill the college was not one of sell 

advertisement; he had but little occasion 

to meet most of the students and faculty 
members and his name seldom got into 
print, but it hi doubtful if there are main 
men who have- done more during the past 
U -w yean to spread abroad a good name 
lor the college than did Mr. Smith, whose 
careful breeding made the college Hock 
famous. His work was done quietly but 

efficiently and effectively, and Aggie is 

just so much more famous because of him. 
The news of his death is a reminder to 
some of the rest of us that it is not neces- 
sary to see one's name blazoned forth on 
the front page of newspapers or anywhere 
else to feel that one's life is successful. 
Fame- is not an index to success, and that 
is a truth which we must realize all the 
more because wc are college men and 
women, and are naturally tempted to 
expect a little more in the way of fame 
because of that. You will be successful 
if you can look back and point to a life 
of honest effort and loyalty to your duty. 
It makes no matter if you do not become 
as famous as Steinmetz or (lalli-Curci 
or 1 osdick— if you can sincerely feel that 
you have made the world better in any 
way, and that your influence has been a 
help to someone else, then you can feel 
that VOUr life has been a success.

The Mid -Winter Alumni Day program 
for February 7 has been announced by 
the Alumni Office and includes the 

following features: a business meeting of 
the Associate Alumni in Memorial Hall, 
an all-college sing and games in which the 
alumni will participate. The basketball 
game with Northeastern takes place on 
this date, and the Sunday chapd of the 
following day will be followed by a mem- 
orial service for the late Professor l'hilip 
Ikvier Hasbrouck. 

Ain't Force of Habit Crand? 

Altho it's been the new year 
lor several davs or more, 
We still are dating papers 
As nineteen -t weuiy-four! 


We note that a Boston paper is running 
a Poilyanna serial. 

This from Boston, the cultural center 
of the world! Another illusion shattered! 
The first of our illusions blew up when we 
K ot the worst plate of beans we've ever 
pursued around a plate- in a Boston bean 


There's still another illusion tho that 
nothing— not even directions from a 
Boston policeman— -Can shatter. Which is, 
that Boston has the most complicated 
maze of streets a confidi stranger ever got 

lost on. 

YOU aim for a building straight ahead, 
walk right toward it, and find yourself 
three block! back of where you started. 

But this, as you've probably remarked, 
has nothing to do with Poilyanna. 

Quite so. We will return to the lady 

at once. 


This hollow optimist, Poilyanna, an- 
noys us more than any other female we've 
ever encountered, whether in fiction, in 
real life, or at a dance (which is real life 
tainted with fictional traditions). She's 
incorridgeably hopeful, and gives one an 
unholy desire to find a large- black cloud 
with a solid ebony lining and smother 
her therein. 

But for all that her philosophy has its 

good pofcsta. 

i.e. nothing is as bad as it might be. 
From newspaper and radio reports we'd 
gathered the impression that all New 
England was buried under tons of ice 
and gallons of snow, with the mercury 
breaking holes in the thermometer glass 
and dropping on the floor with dull sicken- 
ing thuds as it tried to keep down with the 
temperature, and with winds shrieking 
wildly aI>out and whisking cows, Fords, 
and other natural impedimenta lightly 

Instead of which, we- find it very much 
as usual, OT even le-ss so. 

Poilyanna, you said a mouthful.

Cosmopolitanism is on the decrease in 
Harvard according to the figures printed 
by the foreign students' secretary. The 
considerable variety of last year— forty- 
three countries were represented — has 
been replaced by an increased registration 
of American students, so that now only 
thirty-four countries are represented. 

Amherst Men Honored 

Fifty-three Amherst students have been 
given honorable mention for excellence in 
scholarship during the academic year 
1923-24. The award is given to students 
who have gained an average of 93 per 
cent or over in a single subject and have 
a general average of 75 or over in all 

In the Christmas number of the 
Garden Magazine is an elaborate illus- 
trated article by Professor Frank A. 
Waugh entitled "A Personal View of 
California Gardens." The same maga- 
zine contains an article on "All Year 
Round in the California Gardens" by 
Allison M. Woodman, formerly a gradu- 
ate student in landscape architecture at 
this college. 

| The author of the following U a student 
in the London School of /•.'< onomii s. The 
article represents his impressions during a 
Jive months tour of the United States in 
which he visited some thirty colleges and 
universities of every type scattered from one 
end of the continent to the other. He 
admits that he could spend but a ftm days 
at each institution and hence his remarks 
are frequently superficial. Nevertheless, 
the impressions we make on our brothers 
of other lands are worthy of serious con- 
sideration. | 

The visitor from Europe cannot fail to 
be amazed at two features in the American 
college- system: first, its extreme newness 
and tremendously rapid growth; and 
second, its accessibility, at any rate as 
compared with England, to the sons and 
daughters of the mass of the people. A 
boy or girl can get into college much more 
easily and with much poorer parents than 
is usually the case in England. 

But when the boy gets in he receives 
something entirely different from what is 
known as a university education in 
Europe. He gets, not so much an insight 
into ways of thinking and methods of 
reasoning, not so much a background of 
culture, as a training in "leadership", 
"citizenship" and "character". This may 
be a desirable thing at the present point 
of development of the United States, but 
it is something quite distinct from the 
European conception of a university. 

The student not only gets something 
different, but he expects something 
different. In England you go to the 
university to develop yourself, while in 
America you go to the university to dis- 
tinguish yourself. There you have a 
whole world of difference. In America, 
a boy is always endeavoring to attain 
■erne outward sign of achievement, to 
make the college paper, to make one of 
the clubs or the fraternities, to make the 
football team. The center of gravity is in 
the world of action far more than in the 
world of thought. 

You get the same tendency echoed in 
the acaelemic sphere. I was struck by the 
I llfilhUsTT. the vigor and competence 
with which affairs relating to the world of 
ad ion are handled. I found that everyone 
could use a t ype wr ite r and drive an auto- 
me>bile. I found that drives for money 
were made on a large scale and with a 
success undreamed of in England. I 
found that the applied sciences such as 
medicine, engineering and agriculture, and 
the vocational studies, such as law, are 
at their best taught (and learned!) far 
better than anywhere in England. But 
w hen it came to what one may call by way 
of contrast the world of thought, quite 
the opi>osite was the case. Pure science 
and ptttety cultural subjects, such as 
classics, literature and art, are absolutely 
inferior in most cases, and usually neglec- 
ted. The situation in regard to them is 
either tragic or comic. Accordingly, 
although one meets students who obvious- 
ly show promise of becoming great en- 
gineers, great doctors, captains of indus- 
try, etc., one rarely if ever meets a student 
who seems destined to become a Darwin, 
a Beethoven or a Shelley. 

One of the main reasons why the 
American university system is not going 
the right way to produce men of genius 
in art and philosophy, pure science and 
literature, is because diversity of character 
is not encouraged but suppressed; for 
genius is the flower of exceptional ability. 
Let me explain how this suppression is 
brought about. 

In the first place you have the frater- 
nity. A fraternity is a place where a 
number of young men invite other 
young men to join them on condition 
that they too become like themselves. 
The resulting intellectual stagnation is 
called a fraternity; and in these places 
there is no room at all for a fellow who is 
in any way different from his fellows. Any 
knobs on his character are quickly knock- 
ed off. The fraternity has certain good 
phases, but the above describes the effect 
on the mentality of its members. 

Then there are the badges and class 
distinctions which abound in America, 
the land where class distinctions are 
supposed not to exist. You can often tell 
from a man's appearance almost every- 
thing about him. At Leland Stanford (to 
take an example at random) sophomores 
wear white corduroy trousers, juniors 
wear small caps, seniors wear hard Mexi- 
can hats. At Oklahoma and elsewhere 
engineers wear Stetson hats and lawyers 
carry canes; while the ubiquitous pins and 

buttons show what fraternity ■ nun 
helnngi to and srhnrc he met his 
The "tyranny of categories" is pushed 

an extreme point and has the vei\ 
|M>rtant effect in reducing the- in livid 
to a mere number of a category, and 
robbing him of his individuality to I 
1 call a dangerous exteat Add to this 

absence of ■ iTaeomhhj amount <>f prh 

in the life of the- student, and you nia\ 
what I am driving at. The d esi re for 
privacy is regarded as bad lorm in 
American colleges; ami the usual rule- U 
that everybody's eloor must always he 
open for everybody to walk in or look in 
at random. In the fraleniit ic-s in part i< . 
lar, the lack of privacy is a special cm 

But a certain amount of privacy ii 
absolutely essential for the growth of 
individuality — indeed for any real inner 

development at ah. And this the American 

student does not get. That is why wh en 
I looked through Herbert Hoover's little 
book on "American lnilivielualism", it 
occ u rr e d to me that there is no real 
individualism in America whatever in 
the sense of there being a true diversity 
of character and personality. For this 
the university system is largely respon- 
sible.— Thf New Student.

The speaker pointed out that the re- 
verse is equally true. "Those who fail to 
resist— those who do not struggle against 
the obstacles confronting them— are the 
shiftless, drifting about with the wind. 
That is the way of all vagabonds — with 
the wind at their backs," he said. 

"Things in the spiritual world are only 
possible for those who face the struggle," 
the speaker went on to say. "If you 
struggle for spiritual rewards, they'll be 
yours — now — even as you fight and 
struggle. We don't want the life of ease;. 
we want the busy life. That is just what 
Christ asked."

Piercing the Great Divide 

West of Denver is the Continental Divide; hemmed 
in behind it is an undeveloped district twice as 
large as Maryland. That fertile area the new 
Moffat Tunnel will open up. 

General Electric mine locomotives are carrying out 
the rock, and G-E motors are driving air compres- 
sors and pumping water from underground rivers. 

The conquests of electricity on land and sea, m 
the air and underground, are making practical the 
impossibilities of yesterday. It remains only for 
men of ability to find new things to do tomorrow. 
Thus does Opportunity of 1925 beckon college men 
and women toward greater things as yet undreamed, 
and to a better world to live in. 

The General Electric Com- 
pany includes many special- 
ists — engineers who know 
about tunnels; engineers 
who know about street light- 
ing; engineers who know 
about the electrification of 
factories. These men are 
helping to build the better 
and happier America in 
which you will live.

The Aggie hockey team open e d their 

meson by defeating the Williams aggre- 
gation on the Aggie pond last Saturdav 
afternoon by a BCOrC of - tO In I gsMM 

marked by Aggie dozedness. The game 
«nj between Two teams one ol which ex- 
celled la defensive work and the other la 

offensive drive. Since the rough ice made 
it difficult to stay with the puck with 
any certainty, the Williams wings and 
Canter, certainly the fastest men in the 
game, were hampered in this depart ment . 
'Cordon's and Captain Crosby's constant 
alertness allowed few openings for good 
shots and Palmer cleverly stopped these 
attempts to score, hfobefg also played a 
good defensive name but he shone even 
more in being able to save himself lor an 
offensive thrust, picking his O pen i ng s and 
then by clever stick work evading all 
opponents and "crashing through." He 
is responsible for both tallies. There is 
still considerable competition for the arittg 
positions. Four men were tried Saturday 
in these two places and all seemed to 

play equally well. The- leading c a ndid ates 

for this berth now are Potter, a transfer 
from C.A.C.. Taylor, II. White and, 

Dining the first two periods the puck 
was .it the Aggie ^n^ of the rink mo-i ol 
the time, but no score was made until 
well into the second period. When their 
cage was threatened the entire Aggie- 
team formed an impenetrable- wall around 
it. The real fight started, though, when 
the second period was half over after 
Moberg broke through the visitors' 
defense and carried the puck almost to 
the very edge of the Williams cage from 
where he sent the robber home before 
Chapman could prevent it. Williams

Dean Brown Says Students Ask 
Foolish Questions on Truth of Holy 

An admirable defense of the Bible in 
the face of the foolish and trivial ques tio ns 
which are constantly being raised par- 
ticularly by college men, was made at 
chapd last Sunday by Dean Charles R. 
Brown of the Vale Divinity School. 
"The man who shakes his fist at < iod and 
demands the explanation of everything he 
does not understand, may be compared 
to a private on the Argonne front during 
the World War, who laid down his arms 
and demanded that Marshall Koch make 
plain to him the details of the plan of his 
campaign and explain all their tactics 
before he would continue the struggle." 

" 'How can we reconcile the Bible with 
evolution,' 'How are we to say the Bible 
is inspired by Cod when it is full of dis- 
crepancies?' 'What has science to say of 
the virgin birth?' These questions," 
said Dean Brown, "are repeatedly being 
brought to me by students. What is all 
that to them? Follow Him. All these 
matters will eventually be made plain. 
Science is not able to explain everything 
that we think it can. A hundred years 
ago an old scholar was able to show by 
Scripture proof the exact year, month and 
day on which God created the universe. 
His boldness is an absurdity to us. A 
hundred years from now the accuracy of 
our science may be laughed at. The first 
chapter of Genesis is not a scientific docu- 
ment; it is a religious poem. 

"What has science to say of the virgin 
birth? This is one of the trivial and 
foolish questions that is raised by students. 
But what matter is it to us whether 
Christ was born of the virgin mother or 
if he had two parents like the rest of us? 
We do not rest our claim as to His divinity

Mr. Guy A. Thelin, for two years pre- 
vious to this an instructor in Agronomy 
at M.A.C., writes from the American 
Board Mission, Foochow, Fukien, China, 
where he is just beginning his work in 
Agricultural Education. After leaving 
M.A.C, Mr. Thelin spent some months 
in the school for training missionaries at 
New York and then, previous to sailing, 
studied the types of agricultural schools 
in various parts of this country beginning 
with Massachusetts and going through 
the South, finally sailing in August. His 
letter gives an interesting description of 
the situation in Japan where reconstruc- 
tion is under way, also the portion of 
China which has recently been involved 
in Civil war. Since Agricultural Education 
is just being opened in the BSCtioa in 
which he is located, he st. itcs that he is 
on the ground floor for agricultural work 
and has already found the pupils extremely 
interesting. Mr. Thelin may be reached

Three Meets for Relay Team; Two 
Scheduled for Spring Track Outfit. 


Prof. Monahan to Give First of 
College's New Radio Series of Lectures 

The college is to extend its field of 
action to an almost unlimited number of 
people on the night of Tuesday the 127th 
when the first of a series of five lectures 
on poultry breeding and rearing will be 
given to the world from the Westinghouse 
radio broadcasting station WBZ at 
Springfield. Prof. W. C. Monahan, 
poultry si>ecialist with the college ex- 
tension service, will give the lectures. 

The course, which is a part of an 
extensive educational program planned 
by the college, is given through the 
courtesy of A. S. Hasenman, director of 
the station, and was arranged by Robert 
D. Hawley of the extension service. A 
home study course lesson on the same 
subject will be ready for distribution to 
the college for those who apply as a result 
of the publicity accorded through the 
broadcasted lesson. 

Much interest is being shown this 
winter in the relay team. Ten men have 
already reported including Captain Ross, 
the only veteran, Snilfcn, Martlett, and 
1 hillings. Three moSS have been schedul- 
ed this winter; they are is lollows:

In a great many instances, it has 
appeared highly inappropriate to perform 
this custom, for it has really grown to be 
a custom. On several occasions such an 
outburst of enthusiasm has seemed very 
much out of keeping with the nature of 
the talk, but it has occurred without fail. 
Thus this article, which was deemed 
necessary after the editor had been ap- 
proached by several individuals, regarding 
the feasibility of this practice. The 
general opinion of those individuals has 
been that it is a custom best done away 

There is no doubt but that the idea 
originated when it seemed fitting and 
proper to vent the accord of the student 
body in some such singular manner, but 
either the type of assembly speaker has 
changed, or the feelings of the student 
body have undergone a metamorphosis. 
But in any event, would it not be better 
to express approval with the usual hand 
clapping, with occasional bedlam when 
the points of the orator are exceptionally 
well brought out? 

A mere glance about when the call to 
give the cheer is given will convince one, 
from the mutterings and disgusted looks 
on faces that the custom is no longer a 
popular one. 

It is a poor criticism which does not 
offer a remedy, and in this case it is hard 
to do this. But we suggest that if no 
adverse criticism is received, the cheer 
leader cease this practice immediately. 

What's the thing we learn in Soph 
English about "Lhude singe cuckoo?" 


It's in weather like this that we suppose 
the answer is that it's cuckoo that it sings. 


M. A. (if. Q. \. 

There are few people who cannot 
realize and appreciate the excellent work 
of the Salvation Army. That the organi- 
zztion has thousands and even millions 
of admiring supporters is proven each 
year by the large sums contributed at 
Christmas that the ministrations of this 
wonderful body to the jioor and suffering 
may be carried on. That the Salvation 
Army is a worthy organization there is 
no doubt. 

Here on our campus we have an organ 
which performs its services in much the 
same spirit as this great Army, depending 
upon public subscription as its means of 
support, and doing the little things which 
do not reflect directly upon it, but which 
make the college bigger and better. This 
is the M.A.C. Christian Association. 

Acts such as the publishing of the 
Freshman Handbook, the holding of the 
freshman reception each year, and numer- 
ous others, are functions which most 
people take as a matter of course, but 
which actually require time, and particu- 
larly money. 

There is annually a drive held by the 
Association to secure funds enough to 
carry on its work. And annually there is 
a lack of response which is appalling. 
When calkd upon to make a contribution 
to this cause nearly everyone seems to 
forget how much his handbook and the 
reception meant to him his first year, and 
the many other things which the Associ- 
ation did to make his first few \vcck> 
easier. There is the general atmosphere 
of "Let it get along, it always has," but 
the reason that it has was beca m e those 
most interested in it were always trying 
to secure money, and small sums win 

And t imes have not changed. Attempts 
are still being made to obtain funds 
sufficient to carry on the work. An 
endeavor of this sort, which will give 
everyone in college an opportunity, is a 
play to be given Jan. 20. This play will 
be given by the Christian Association, 
the proceeds to be used in the furtherance 
of the aims of the organization. 

Sinn this is not a direct plea to give, 
but an exchange of a play for the price, 
there seems no excuse for anyone to slight 
this worthy cause, but rather a chance to 
help swell the coffers of the Association. 

The College needs the Christian Associ- 
ation, and the As>ociation needs money. 
Help the College. 



Hampden County League Secretary 
Tells of the Work of the Organization. 




The secretary of the pioneer county 
extension service of America, Mr. Roscoe 
C. Etllund of the Hampden County 
(Mass.) Improvement League was the 
speaker at assembly last Wednesday. 
"What I want to give to you," Mr. 
Kdlund said, "is the idea that the work of 
the county agricultural extension service 
is not of concern simply to the people 
who live on the farms. This organi- 
zation is built upon the idea of the inter- 
dependence of the city and the farm." 

The speaker gave a survey of the type 
of membership which supports this- ex- 
tension work. It was made apparent 
that the work is not dependent solely 
u|x>n farmers and gardeners directly 
interested in receiving the assistance 
offered by the extension service. "There 
is a growing realization by the business 
man," the speaker said, "that it pays in 
all things worth while. The prosperity of 
the small surrounding towns helps Spring- 
field business. It is the concern of all the 
business of the county that agriculture 
should be properous. Business men in 
other parts of the country will realize 
that they can't make a better investment 
for better business than in the extension 
service. We are interested in agriculture 
not for charity, not to help others, but 
because it is a \ital concern of ours. If 
by more extension service it might be 
possible to increase production, or at 
least to stop the decrease in production 
in Massachusetts, it would increase by 
half a million dollars the prosperity of 
I Iampden County " 

Mr. Edlund traced the history of the 
formation of this pioneer organization of 
its kind, explaining how it grew out of a 
realization of the conditions to be met in 
New England, with its high cost of food, 
its decreasing farm production and its 
growing dependence u|x>n other sections 
of the country for its fotxl supply. 


Everybody Up! 

"To cheer or not to cheer, that is the 
question." When one has slept through 
a particularly choice assembly talk, and 
the clapping wakes one up, there is a 
general reaching of hands to the seat in 
front, preparatory to rising and issuing a 
long yell for the speaker. It has made no 
difference in the past who the speaker 
was or what he said, he has invariably 
bowed himself from the platform with 
the cheer ringing in his ears, and no doubt 
wonder in his mind as to just what this 
sudden burst of shouts, with bis name on 
the end, or it may be someone else's 
name for all one can tell, but it sounds 
like his, has reference to, or what he said 
that brought forth the din. 

The engagement of Roland \Y. Rogers, 
assistant professor of horticulture, and 
Evelyn Gilbert of South Orange, N. J., 
was announced recently. 


Director Haskell spoke at Burlington, 
Yt., this afternoon before the Vermont 
Dairymen's Association on the subject 
"Looking Forward in Dairy Science." 

Tomorrow he attends a meeting of the 
fertilizer control officials in Boston. 
These officials will be gathered from all 
over New England in an attempt to get 
a uniform tag to do for all the states, a 
demand for such a tag having come from 
the dealers who are at present required 
to make separate tags for each state. 

Friday and Saturday the director will 
attend the meetings in Boston of the New- 
England Experiment Station Directors. 
These meetings take in not only the heads 
of the New England stations but also 
those of the New York, New Jersey, 
Pennsylvania, and Delaware stations.

bromide, the weather. 


As witness the above. 


We object to abstractions about our- 

Especially about our mind. It may be a 
poor thing, but it's our own. 

What people never seem to grasp is 
that the "student body" isn't a formless 
abstraction, malleable — no, nothing hard 
and fast as to be termed malleable. A 
lecturer's idea of a "student body" is a 
large mass of particularly soft clay, which 
can be easily molded, by a few well- 
directed jabs into theoretical perfection. 

The student Ixxly is a sort of trained 
elephant to these leaders, apparently. It 
can be taught tricks, but it's a dumb brute, 
and futile if let alone. 

All applesauce! You and I are the 
student body, and we're individuals, and 
can only be improved individually. And 
our minds can't be lumped, and can't be 
pushed in a herd. 

We wish people wouldn't speak of us 
as "the student body, which must be etc. 
etc., etc." 

It's aggravating, and makes us feel 
like throwing Karl Marx and Shakespeare 
into the nearest fire and buying whole 
editions of Elinor Clyn and Harold Bell 

Which, of course, is not the kind of 
reading which the "student body" should 
indulge in!

There are obviously attractive features 
in the plan for a university of a new type 
outlined in the January number of the 
Century magazine by Dr. Alexander 
Meiklejohn, former president of Amherst 
College. He calls it a college and in some 
respects it suggests that rather than a 
university, even though the nature and 
the scope of the curriculum might seem 
more appropriate for . the latter. The 
college of the English university is 
suggested both by the proposed use of 
the tutorial system and the limitation of 
the student body to two hundred and 
fifty or three hundred. 

As a mere matter of educational ma- 
chinery such a system might win the 
approval of many unconventional edu- 
cators who would use it in a way quite 
unlike that proposed by Dr. Meiklejohn. 
His idea is that the college should teach 
not subjects but civilizations. The fresh- 
men, for example, would devote their 
time to ancient Greece, taking up econo- 
mics, politics, ethics, art, and letters as 
practiced in that period. For a contrast, 
the sophomores would study a great 
modern civilization such as that of 
England in the nineteenth century. Then 
in the last two years the students could 
fill in the gaps between these two periods 
and to some extent specialize their 

Such a course as he outlines has its 
fascination for all those who are broadly 
interested in the history of mankind, and 
if well taught would be distinctly human- 
izing. But a good many teachers would 
be aghast at the notion of trying a 
curriculum of this type on the average 
run of freshmen and sophomores. The 
student body of the proposed college 
would have to be fit as well as few, and 
some other provision would have to be 
made for giving them instruction in the 
rudiments which the American college is 
at present compelled to provide for. 
Without solid training somewhere such 
an attempt to skim one civilization the 
first year and another the second year 
would be rather too much like the cultural 
courses which many women's clubs are 
now pursuing, with pleasure and profit to 
their members but with no thought that 
asurvey of civilizations is a full substitute 
for the sustained study of special subjects. 
Obviously the type of college outlined 
could not meet all needs. The institution 
which Dr. Meiklejohn hopes to found 
would lie not merely radically new but 
highly specialized. To a limited number 
whose temperament and mental habits 
resemble those of the founder it might 
appeal immensely, while others of equal 
intelligence but other tastes might feel 
wholly out of place there. But this is 
not necessarily a fatal objection, because 
if the novel machinery should work well, 
it could be widely imitated in other 
small colleges, each noted for specialties 
of its own. This is the exact course of the 
m odern theory of the standardized college, 
offering standardized units of all standard 
subjects to anybody who wants them. 

But not many educators think that the 
last word has yet been said, and it may be 
that the next long forward step will come 
from abandoning the huge and cr owde d 
institutions "a la carte" in favor of a 
variety of cozy establishments, where a 
choice and celebrated "table d'hote" pre- 
vails. Individualism has run wild in 
American education; quite apart from 
Dr. Meiklejohn's notion of studying 
civilizations instead of subjects, nis plan 
is of interest as putting to an unusual 
degree the emphasis on the group rather 
than the individual. 

On the practical side the plan is open 
to the objection that its working would 
be rather expensive, though this would 
not be so much the case with general 
subjects such as the proposed college 
would take up as with the study of scien- 
tific subjects requiring costly equipment. 
Even this difficulty, however, might be 
surmounted by grouping such specialized 
colleges in large universities after the 
English plan. 

The Collegian accepts no responsibility for opio.l 
ions voiced in "The Forum." It aims to serve A 
a means of giving expression to student opinion! 
and will print any views expressed rationally an<J 
sanely, unless the editors feel that they are just,. 
fied in suppressing them because of unfair i* t .|

Delta Phi Gamma Initiation

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

The Aggie Revue of 1924 was so %<*A 
that it inevitably suggests how niudil 
better it might be and ought to be. Ijl 
the reader considers the program cartl 
fully and without the natural prejudice! 
for the work of his own class or favorite! 
group, he will agree, 1 believe, that the| 
most interesting performances were tlio*j 
by the freshmen and the seniors. [I 
make this statement, too, with full I 
consciousness of the fact that in thel 
junior stunt, "Not By A Dam Site," w t j 
were treated to the very best stage! 
directing that I have ever had the good! 
fortune to witness by students in either! 
college. It had taken great care and,[ revealed an unusual knowledge) 
of values in the stage itself and in the play. 
Yet I humbly submit that this produc-l 
tion and the one by the sophomores, "An| 
Easy Mark," are not the kind of stunts 
that we should do. Indeed they are notl 
worthy doing, though that is not the 
reason for objection. Why should be get! 
cheap stuff from some publisher as a 
class stunt? It represents the class very 
inadequately and only temporarily, for 1 1 
may see the same stunt at Perkins' Cor- 
ners next week by the sewing circle or at] 
the Podunkus High School by the children. 
No; either class could not only produce | 
its own stunt, an original one, — indeed! 
it should be required to do so if it cared I 
to be on the program — but it could pro 
duce better plays than either "An Easyl 
Mark" or "Not By A Dam Site." 

This last remark is not merely a guess; 
it comes out of experience of the English I 
Department in its attempt to encourage I 
the writing of one-act plays by the 
freshmen and sophomores in competition 
for the prize offered by the Roister Doi>] 
ters. I have had submitted to me many 
plays as good as any of those presented 
in the Revue. If these plays were im- 
proved in accordance with suggest ions | 
that any member of the English Depart 
ment 1 am sure would be glad to give. 
they would probably be better than any 
of those presented. And how va 
more interesting would be these products 
of our own students! 

We might even have some musical 
comedy stunts, such as some colleges I 
commonly have; Miss Perley's effort of last | 
Near certainly justifies such a suggestion.

Sophomore Wins Honors 
Ella Buckler '27, at a Union Agricul-

January 7, was awarded a gold medal 
for her achievements in agriculture during 
the past year. The medal is one of six J 
which the Massachusetts Department oi 
Agriculture awards annually to those 
who have done outstandingly godrj work 
in agriculture during the year. Of the 
six, two are designated as junior medals 
one being given to a boy and the other 
to a girl. The award was made to Mi« I 
Buckler because of what she has done in 
4-H Club work. For seven years she has 
been a club member, in six different pro- 
jects. For four years she was the local 
leader in 4-H Club work about Pittsfield. 
In the project work she has won five trips j 
to Camp Gilbert, the summer camp at

parts of the state attend, and has been 
present at the local leader training school 
held at the Eastern States Exposition.

iporting and Athletic Goods 

Last Saturday the M.A.C. 1 >.i-k«t G.ill 
team received its first defeat of the BMMM 
at the hands of the renowned C.C.N.Y. 
aggregation. The score is indicative of the 
age-old story about the small squad ol 
able athletes pitted against the large 
squad of able athletes. From the first 
whistle of the game until within about 
fifteen minutes of the end, the outcome 
was forever in doubt. At half time the 
C.C.N.Y. club led by the scant margin of 
three points, 11 to 8. But soon after the 
reoj>ening of hostilities Partenheimer 
caw<\ two baskets, which coupled with 
two points acquired through a foul, 
thrust M.A.C. into the lead. Presently 
the New Yorkers regained their former 
jK)sition and then fifteen minutes from 
the final whistle and with a lead of only 
two points they "froze" the ball. That is, 
instead of attempting to increase their 
lead they al>ondoned offensive tactics and 
adopted the passive game of retaining the 
ball in the middle of the floor thereby 
forcing the M.A.C. players to break their 
five man defence; a questionable strategy 
from the point of s|>ortsmanship. Forced 
to leave their positions in order to regain 
the ball the Agates proved no match for 
the shifty New Yorkers in the man to 
man game. Holman, the City College 
coach, substituted five Ircsh men for the 
jaded varsity and this proved the Waterloo 
of the Aggie hOfKS, for the Agrarians wen- 
unable to equal the apstd of these fresh 
men after such a strenuous game and so 
the points rolled up rapidly. 

The M.A.C. defence was practically 
impervious to assault throughout the 
game. The New Yorkers stored only one 
floor basket in the first half against 
Aggie's two, but they capitalized their 
foul ahotl while the Massachusetts play- 
ers were rather weak in this respect. 

Partenheimer and Samuels were per- 
haps the individual stars for M.A.C., 
although Smiley 's defensive work and 
lii> ability to shoot fouls aided materially 
in the Abates valiant struggle for victory.

Springfield Alumni

The Springfield Alumni have recently 
voted to take an active part in college 
extension work. A committee consisting 
of Fted I). (iriggs '13, H. C. Walker 16, 
and Herbert W. Headle '18 has been 
appointed to handle the club work there,

Extensive Field Work the 
Best Laboratory 

WITH all the ingenuity and effort of the most 
exacting engineers, even of the competent, re- 
sourceful men who design Case machines, no machine 
ever reaches the highest state of development until 
it has been used extensively in field work. 

The reason is obvious. The best laboratory and 
experimental field tests known furnish only Halted 
opportunities for improvement as compared to the 
infinite variety of conditions met with in extensive- 
field operation. 

Here again, this Company i3 fortunate. We have 
thousands of machines in operation, in every civilized 
country on the globe. Every condition of soil, crop, 
power, weather, climate and handling is represented 
in field reports on the operation of Case machines. 

We maintain a department for the monthly classi- 
fication and analysis of the accurate information 
contained in these reports. This system enables 
Case engineers to proceed with certainty toward 
refinements far in advance of the ordinary. This is 
why Case machines meet so successfully all the 
requirements of profitable farming.

penaatC for this point. Several hard sirups 
remitted in front of the Aggie cage and at 
timet Palmer's eye and stick were called 
into play but the Agates .merged with a 
dear record when the period closed. In 
tin- next period the home team showei' 
more offensive power and kept the puck 
.it the Williams end fully as much as they 
defended their own fOal. It was in one 

oi these Hirgea down the ice that Moberg 

broke through and scored once more. 

Captafal Watkins of Williams was the 
outstanding player and skater on the ice. 
He seemed to be constantly on the- trail 
of the bouncing, rolling rubber and may 
DC considered as having possession of it 
more than any other one player. Due

sufficient to create an annual fund of 
about a million dollars. A three-million-

Great Preacher Brings Message of 
True Religion, How it Comes, and 
How to Meet it. 

li»g Margaret Shea and Miss Marion Cassidy, M.A.C.** duplicates of the 
)uncan Sisters, as they appeared in the Y Show last night. 

Miss Marion Cassidy '26 and Miss 
Margaret Shea '26 last night added to 
their laurels as song specialty artists 
idun they gave the title act in the M.A.C. 
Thristian Association show "Stick in the 
Mud", produced in the Amherst Town 
iall. The young ladies gave a number of 
akoM which have been made popular 
through the famous Duncan Sisters, and 
fcath was extremely well received. 

The show as built around the difficul- 
ties of a theatrical booking agency in 
krranging a vaudeville circuit, and the 
Various specialty acts introduced were 
Lpposedty offered for the benefit of the 
jgeat, Donald R. Parker '25, who had as 
hi- -tenographer Miss Maude Bosworth 
l-V. A ntuabef of acts were provided, and 
In the latter part of the program Parker's 

orchestra, which supplied music for the 
other acts, was given an opportunity to 
show its ability at novelty playing, and 
made a real hit. 

The acrobatic stunts done by Walter 
Whittum '25, Charles McGeoch '25 and 
Philip Couhig '26 were clever and pro- 
duced a number of laughs. James Rich- 
ards *26, in a novelty song act, likewise 
won a round of laughter, and H. K. 
Ansell, Two Year '25, offering a clever 
clog dance act, was well applauded. The 
other acts were also satisfactory and 
helped to round out a well arranged show. 
Much of the success of the show is due 
to Donald Parker, who assisted in the 
preparation of practically every act on 
the program, as well as supplying the 
orchestra and its special features. 

"The moral man is the man who has 
mastered the secret of his own life. The 
religious man has found the way of his 
own life and, becoming smitten with a 
conscience of those living around him, 
gives up the possibility of deliverance for 
himself to deliver those about him." 
This definition of the religious man was 
given by Rev. John I lay nes Holmes, of the 
Community Church, New York City, in 
his chapel message last Sunday. "The 
moral man has filled the ideals of ethics — 
he has fulfilled all the principles laid 
down for him. The religious man when 
he finds himself face to face with some 
critical situation, throws his own deliver- 
ance away for the sake of someone else's 
soul, 'Greater love iiath no man than 
when he throws down his own life for 
this,' " the speaker said, quoting his 
text. He gave as an example of such 
religion the heroism of the soldier during 
the World War who left his own position 
of security in the trench to go out into 
No Man's Land in an attempt to rescue 
a wounded comrade whose cries for help 
had reached his ear. The unknown 
woman in the disaster of the Titanic who 
yielded voluntarily to an elderly lady 
the opportunity for rescue, was also held 
up as an example of this religious heroism 
"We don't have to wait for the battle 
or the sinking of the ship. Every moment 
in your experiences — as you will find — 
you have the choice of moral living for 
yourself and divine living sor someone

Norwich Five Provides 

Easy Win For Agates 

Farmers Win Third of Four Starts on the Court so Far This Year. 

The Aggie live convincingly defeated 

the Norwich basketball team til to 124 
in a fast, rugged game last Thursd.n at the 
Dlill Hall It was a hard contest, Itorder- 
ing on rOUghneai at times tfld in spite of 

the difference in the soorea the iatareal 

of the spectators was given no op|>ortunit y 
to Hag. Temple as usual started the 

■coring early in the tret period and from 

that time the Agates tallied almost at 
will. The Aggie team worked with a 

smooth oo-operation which accounted for 

the greater percentage ol the score, 
while the Norwich team failed to function 
as a unit with the result that their elTorts 
were fruitless. At no time did the Yer- 
montcrs threaten to overcome the ever 
increasing lead ol the Bay Staters though 
their individual attempts to do so wen; 


Temple's ability Initli as a lloor worker 
and (joint scorer not only in this game 
but in every one thus far, mark him as 
the outstanding player on the team so 
ably led by (apt. Samuels. Jones at 
center is rapidly assuming the proportions 
ol a "Willie" Marshmaii and tin- efforts 
of the backs, Smiley and I'ai lenhcinier, 
are among the finest qualities of the team. 
Both offensively ami defensively they 
have been decisive factors in every victory 
to date. 

Thursday afternoon the team meets 
the Williams hoopsters in what promises 
to be a more keenly contested game. The 
Williams team defeated Norwich the 
evening previous to the Agates contest 
with the Cadets but by a smaller margin. 
In spite of the fact that several of the 
Williams veterans, including (apt. 
Fisher, are ineligible the team under the 
mentorship of Coach Messcrs has won 
every game thus far this season.

\n Aggie hockey team, in |M>or condition 
because of a haul o(M)-mile trip and little 
mat after the fast Hamilton game, was 
defeated 2 to 1 by Cornell in a slow but 
rough game at Ithaca on a very uneven 

The Cornell team started from the In si 
whistle toward the Aggie end ol the ice. 
Many long shots were tried none ol which 
were sin cess! ul. Neither team could do 
much offensively because of the rough ice 
until the Cornell right wing took the puck 
away from Moberg near the Aggie goal 
and knocked it into the cage. The second 
period Opoaod with the Agates showing 
more light. The only score was the result 
of a break rather than a Hash. Bubier 
tried to bleak through the Aggfa defense 
alone but he tripped and fell on his face. 
While in this poaJtion he swung his stick 
and hit the puck so that it slid into the 
Aggie cage. There were many fouls and 
ottsi.les called in this period which 
slowed up the play. The third period was 
much like the second. With only a few 
minutes to play Moberg mule a success 
ful shot from a crowd in front of the 
Cornell cage, making the score 2 to 1 in 
favor of the home team. 

The Cornell team was much nearer the 
eipial of the Agates than the latter's 
opponents in the two previous contests. 
They displayed no such teamwork and 
speed as either Yale or Hamilton. In 
fact, teamwork was decidedly lacking in 
Cornell's play. The Agates* greatest 
asset was the cool hard work of Palmer, 
the goal tender.

Assembly Speaker Illustrates Talk 
and Outlines What to Look For. 


The demand for tickets for the eclipse 
has been 'large and almost the entire 
allotment for this college has been sold. 
The total number sold here was 130. 
Tickets are now on sale at Lowell's Book 

That the opportunity to witness a 
total eclipse of the sun Saturday is a rare 
one not to be overlooked, was emphasized 
by Prof. Warren K. (ireen of Amherst 
in his assembly talk on the coming 
eclipse. Total eclipses are visible at the 
same point at intervals averaging 350 
years, and another one will not be visible 
in the I'nited States until 1970, so that 
the chances of the opportunity coming 
to any of us again are very slight. 

Dr. (ireen is in charge of the special 
train that is to take the parties from the 
two colleges and the townspeople to a 
point near the center of the region of 
totality in Connecticut. Those going on 
the train are to be supplied with smoked 
glass with which to look at the sun 
before the eclipse, and lists of questions 
to be answered are also to be distributed. 

The observers were cautioned not to 
watch the sun too long before the eclipse, 
because of the danger to the eyesight or 
at least tiring the eyes excessively before 
the few moments of totality. Dr. Green 
requested that the* following things be 
watched for particularly: the instant of 
first contact, the instant of second con- 
tact (beginning of totality), Bailey's 
beads, the flickering shadows, the corona 
(draw it if possible), comets near the sun.

Medal to be Given to 

Best Interclass Player 

In order to stimulate greater interest 
in intramural activities, the Hood KuIjIht 
Co. ol Boats* has offered a distinctive 

void medal to tbe player in the interctaM 
basketball league whose s|>ortsmanlike 

conduit, general ability and value to his 
le.iin mark-, him above his fellows. All of 
the conditions relative to the awarding 

ol this pri/.e have not been de te rmined, 

Imt the chief specifications are that the 
player must be s< liolastically eligible and 

that no varsity or second varsity candidate 

can be cons ider ed. 


Interest in the interclass games has 
In en greatly increased by the fact that an 
attractive gold medal is being offered to 
the contestant who excels in team work, 
shows the greatest improvement during 
the season and whose all around work 
seems in the opinion of the Athletic Board 
to merit this recognition. The interclass

Entered as second-class matter st the Amherst 
Post Office. Accepted for mailing at special rate

tober. 1917 authorized August 20. 1918. 


The matter has been brought to the 
attention of the Editor by those most 
directly concerned that there is a serious 
lack of aspirants for the position of 
manager on the various teams now either 
playing a schedule or, as in the case of 
football merely preparing for the season 
to come. 

In basketball, a sport with a senior 
managership in which sophomores are 
called out there are two men now com- 
peting for the honors. Hockey, another 
sport with a senior managership is being 
supported by the efforts of one man. Any- 
one who knows anything about hockey 
can readily see that the amount of work 
to be done that the team may have the 
proper conditions under which to conduct 
practices is too great for one man to even 
supervise. In football, where the men are 
asked to participate in either wrestling or 
boxing throughout the winter, the fresh- 
men are being called out, since the com- 
petition will last through next fall, when 
they will t>e sophomores. One man has 
reported for a position which should have 
at least >ix. 

Of course there is no one person who 
can be held responsible for such a dirth of 
material, but there are two groups which 
must shoulder the blame, namely the 
sophomore and freshman classes. It 
cannot be that men are setting more 
studious in college than they ever win- 
before, and thus are unable to devote the 
accessary time to this work. Neither dees 
it seem that there are more men out for 
ftthletica, and arc therefore exempt from 
such duties. The logical conclusion is 
that no one cares to put in the time and 
labor which such a position demands. 

The Editor is perhaps as well qualified 
as any to do this direct knocking, since 
be has been through the routine himself. 
and is more or less familiar with the re- 
qturements. He also lives to tell the 
story. Picas, threats and taunts have 
been hurled at classes in an endeavor to 
bring men out, and usually with more or 
less unsatisfactory results. Men have 
been called lounge-lizards, sofa-sheiks 
and other uncomplimentary names, but 
they're content to be well-named. 

A managership should be the most 
sought for position on any team. It offers 
an opportunity to a man not qualified to 
engage in a sport to help so much more 
by lx-ing the manager. It is not a position 
which demands undue subjection, nor does 
it require any work of a disagreeable 
nature. But it does call forth in a man the 
willingness to stick, and work, and to 
take his chances with the next man in 
being rewarded for his sacrifices. 

It b a subject which could Ik* discussed 
for hours, but we do not feel able to 
devote more space to this important 
issue. Nor do we expect a rush of appli- 
cants to the athletic office as a direct 
n Mjlt of this article. We have, however, 
endeavored to meet the matter squarely, 
and hope that enough men will take it 
to heart so that in the future there will 
be at Isesl four men romjH-ting to manage 
every sport on the campus. 

Once In A Lifetime 

That there will be a total eclipse of the 
sun on Saturday, January 24th has been 
proven beyond the shadow of a doubt. 
And it is also forecasted that this blotting 
out of the sun's light will be visible within 
forty miles of our hamlet. It seems 
almost incredible that so phenominal an 
occurrence should be about to take 
place within our own lifetime and so 
close to our present location. But the 
facts are stated, and there are none to 
doubt them, even in this age of disbelief 
and skepticism. 

From latest reports it seems evident 
that many students from this college 
will avail themselves of the rare oppor- 
tunity of viewing this eclipse from a 
point in the center of the shadow. This 
means that a large number are planning 
to make the most of this chance ot see 
something which takes place so seldom 
that it might indeed be called a sign of 
the times. Is it an omen of prosperity, 
will it furnish mediums and prophets 
with material enough to last a lifetime? 
The Editor, being none of these is in no 
position to say, but it is an interesting 
subject to reflect upon. 

We get to think of the sun as an 
ordinary body furnishing light and heat 
to us on earth, but further than that 
having no particular significance to us. 
When we hear a short talk, such as the 
one in Assembly last Thursday, by a 
man who could tell us interesting facts 
about the sun for a whole day, an eclipse 
such as this one promises to be means 
much more to us, than if we were to 
witness it without knowing the first 
thing about the why's and wherefores of 
such a wonderful spectacle. 

Whether you view this phenomenon 
from an area of totality or merely see a 
partial eclipse, you will have seen some- 
thing which will be of interest to your 
posterity, and something which you can 
look back on for years to come with 
added interest. So when you see it see it 
all, do not miss any part of it. It's one 
of the free shows which comes "Once in 
a lifetime". 




Class Elections 

Last week's elections in the sophomore 
and freshman classes cannot but call to 
the attention of the thoughtful student a 
condition which is very unfortunate — 
more so because it is so terribly incon- 
sistent. The time is fast approaching 
when we as a student body or as classes 
individually ought to do something 
definite to remedy the condition. 

With the exception of the office of 
sergeant-at-arms, every office for the 
coming term in the freshman class will 
be filled by the same members of the class 
as have filled them during the past term, 
except that the secretary and treasurer 
have changed places. In the sophomore 
data the president and secretary chosen 
are the same as last term, and most of 
the others have held office at some pre- 
vious time. 

Similar conditions prevail in the two 
upper classes. One man has held the 
position of president of the class of 1025 
ever since the first term of the data's 
sophomore year, and the other offices 
have rotated through a rather small 
circle. In the junior class the offices have 
alto been confined to a small group of the 
men in the data. A number of men have 
held their offices for two or three succes- 
sive terms, and more than once the new- 
man elected to an office was one who had 
previously held that or another office. 

Please do not take this as criticism of 
the policy of keeping one man in office for 
more than one term; it is far from that. 
It is, in fact, intended simply to call 
attention to the fact that this is being 
done, and to urge the use of a little logic 
in our class elections. 

Men who have served as treasurers of 
their classes know how difficult it is to 
carry on the business of the class when 
the officers of the class are continually 
(hanging and the new treasurer must 
make the acquaintance of the class's 
creditors and just about gets used to the 
work when a new man is chosen. Why not 
bt logical? We have found that it is more 
feasible to have the treasurer of the class 
continue in office for two or more terms, 
and from all indications the upper classes 
have found that the same is true regard- 
ing the other officers. 

We are giving ourselves evidence that 
we wish to have our officers serve two or 
three terms instead of simply one. Why 
not change our class constitutions so that 
the men will be chosen for the period of 
a year in the first place and thereby save 
the waste of time and energy required 
under our present system of termly elec- 
tions? The^officers^could^serve us much

In an editorial last week discussion on 
this proposition of cheers for our assembly 
speakers was invited. 

We're all for continuing the old custom, 
and we have marshalled our arguments, 
pro and con, as follows: 

1. Pro 
If the speech is good — 

1. It merits all the applause we can 


2. And cheering expresses our enthusi- 

asm best. 
If the speech is dumb — 

1. Cheering is a relief, and covers the 

yawns of those just waking up. 

2. It's something to do. 

3. It kids the speaker into thinking 

perhaps we aren't as unappreciative 
as he knows we really are. 

2. Con 

There ain't no sich animile. 

"The Speaker this afternoon—" 

They tell us, our teachers and pre- 
ceptors, that we are very rude in assembly. 
We talk and sleep and shuffle our feet, 
and show no mercy to the speaker who 
talks even two minutes overtime. 

Now we've always maintained that that 
is the speaker's own fault, and that if 
speakers who weren't prosy, or dull, or 
monotonous, weren't inflicted on us, we'd 
give them the world's best attention. 

We're not rude, but we do hate to be 


Dr. Greene proves it. He went much 
more than two minutes overtime, and was 
talking about nothing more compelling 
than train schedules, and yet there was 
as attentive silence in the hall as when 
he was in the middle of his most interest- 
ing lecture. 

Personality does it. A forceful man 
makes an attentive audience, and manner 
plus message is the ideal combination. 

The "student body", as we said last 
week, is a peaceful animal, and very re- 
sponsive to kind treatment. 


The Cider Press' Own Lecture 



Ladies and gentlemen of the Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College:- 

The sun is a large yellow object with 
spots on it. There is a clause to that 
effect in all books. The leopard is a small 
yellow object with spots on it. It has 
claws to that effect, all hooks. The sun's 
great feat is giving light; the leopard is 
also very light on its feet . 

The sun has a Corona. The leopard 
has never learned how to typewrite. 
This is how you may distinguish between 
them. There are also minor differences: 
e.g. the leopard sixciulized in bite, the 
sun in light. Also the world goes around 
the sun, but the leopard goes around on 
the world. 

These differences, however, are unim- 
portant in view of the great fact equaliz- 
ing the two once and forever, which is: 
that the leopard is not only often in the 
sun, but is very frequently a son himself. 

We thank you for your kind attention.

more efficiently and it really would not 
materially affect the present indicated 
policies of the various classes. Temporary 
officers for the freshman class could be 
chosen in the fall as now, and the regular 
officers at the beginning of the second term 
but where is there any sense in the other 
three classes holding elections each term 
and then re-electing anywhere from one 
to all six of the officers who have held 
the office for the term just previous? 

Let's bring our class constitutions up 
to date. 

-E. E. B. 

The best place for education to start 
and the worst place for it to end is in a 
state of skepticism. We suggest that 
this is particularly true in regard to the 
desirable effect which a liberal education 
should have on a man's religion. Whether 
or not this is a wise judgment, is a question 
which we are inclined to believe that the 
college must meet as one of its biggest 
problems in the near future, if not the 

It is quite impossible for the college to 
control certain factors in which numerous 
of the problems of education are grounded. 
For instance, it can not touch the in- 
fluences of the home or the prep-school 
which have shaped the life of the student 
up to the time when he enters upon the 
disillusionments which attend higher 
education. In the majority of cases 
certain of these influences have warped 
the man's mental outlook; and, therefore, 
before the college can take up the task of 
education with any hope of success, it is 
necessary that it should root out the 
causes of this false perspective. To speci- 
fically instance the point, a knowledge of 
History can not be acquired while a man 
is under the delusion that the United 
States had the sanction of God in every 
war that it fought. It is equally impossible 
to study Sociology, if the student holds 
an unapproachable belief that the capital- 
istic system is the fulfillment of Utopia. 
It is, likewise, an absurdity to teach 
Evolution, History, Sociology, Astrono- 
my, in fact half the curriculum, if a stu- 
dent insists on accepting the Bible 
literally, and holding to a dogmatic, un- 
reasoned, and often vague code of morality 
with which the majority of students are 
afflicted when they enter this institution. 
The college is, consequently, under the 
necessity to start out by breaking down 
these preconceived convictions. A healthy 
first stage in a man's college development 
then, should be a period of skepticism, in 
all its phases, even that of religion. This 
stage can not be too greatly emphasized; 
for education is merely a technical train- 
ing, unless approached in the spirit of 
free and critical inquiry. 

But now, whereas the college aims to 
make the period of reasoned doubt the 
starting point on every other question, 
and from there stimulates a man to go 
on to new and intelligent convictions, on 
the matter of religion it tends to stop at 
skepticism. The probable reason for this 
is that the college has been inclined to view 
man as a purely rational animal, and we 
use rational here in its narrowest sense. 
Whereas it seems to us that the moral 
and emotional sides of our nature have a 
real importance. 

In many cases, it is true, there is little 
harm done by leaving a man in the 
position of agnosticism, particularly if 
his background has not been strongly 
religious. But there are those whose 
whole emotional and moral existence has 
been centered around religion. If sucli a 
man is of a critical nature our education 
is likely to tear the whole core out of his 
life, and will take but little pains to re- 
place it with intelligent beliefs. As a 
result he finds himself morally and 
emotionally destitute. And it can hardly 
be expected that without guidance he 
will attain to other sound and satisfying 
emotional experiences, or find an intelli- 
gent code of morality to replace the 
authoritative one which he has cast aside. 
It is oftentimes justly advanced that 
this lapse of religion in college is merely 
a temporary one, and that the after- 
college contacts with the world and its 
conventions brings with it a renewal of 
faith. But such a religion, for the majori- 
ty, is likely to be merely a return to the 
beliefs which an intelligent consideration 
led them to slough off. Hence, is it not a 
part of the college's problem to assist a 
man to the beginnings of an intelligent 
morality and the foundations of sounder 
emotional experience while he is still 
under her guidance? 

We readily confess our inability to 
point out any solution for the problem 
which we have suggested. It is possible 
that organ recitals two or three times a 
week might yield part of the needed 
emotional satisfaction. Perhaps a course 
in comparative ethics is feasible. It is 
even possible that if our social life were 
not of such an artificial kind, spontaneous 
group associations might afford sympa- 
thetic contacts for moral development 
and emotional experiences. But these 
suggestions, of course, are merely playing 
on the surface of the problem. We

The Aggie hockey team suffered a come- 
down, after their victory over Williams, 
at the hands of the Yale sextet last 
Wednesday evening at New Haven when 
they were defeated 11 to 1. In the first 
period the Yale team scored freely 
enough so that they were never in danger 
during the remainder of the game. At 
first the Agates were seriously hampered 
by the fact that they were unused to 
playing on a rink none too well lighted 
by electricity. When they had accli- 
mated themselves, Yale had a formidable 
lead of 7 to 0. 

In the second period the home team was 
held to two points and in the final period 
Aggie scored a goal against a fresh Yale 
second team. 

Yale presented a clever, fast, unified 
aggregation. The old "Aggie fight" was 
needed and found when the Agates 
checked the Yale free scoring. The Yale 
forward line deserves much credit. Fast 
skating, clever stick work and remark- 
ably sure and swift passing was displayed 
by them in every part of the game.

The M AC. hockey team again met 
better than its equal in the Hamilton it e 
aggregation which shut them out, "> to 0, 
at Clinton, N. Y., last Friday evening in 
the fastest game in which either team 
has participated this season. The game- 
was played in a large, well lighted, indoor 
arena with hard natural ice in excellent 
condition, which enlivened the game 

co nsi d er ably. 

The first period consisted of repeated 
surges from one' end of the ice to the 

other. Although Captain Thompson of 

Hamilton started the noting early from 
a difficult angle, the home team only 
slightly outshone their opponents. In the 

second period, h o weve r , the Hamilton 

forwards displayed much speed and 

aggressiveness, e specia lly Thompson, and 

succeeded in pushing two shots past 
Palmer, who turned back many more. 

H. Valentine and Yates made the shots. 
The Agates e ntered the third period 

with more drive than they have shown at 
any time this year. Taylor, Moberg, and 
Potter kept the puck at the Hamilton iw\ 
continuously for four minutes but the 
Hamilton second team which started the 

period was relieved by the- first team. 
Again the pue k went from one end to the 

other until at exactly half time- Sarcka 
shot another goal which was soon followed 
by one from Thompson's stick. 

Ciordon was the outstanding Aggie- 
player checking his man carefully when 
ever the rublnr was near his own goal. 
Thompson ,the Hamilton center and 
captain, was the outstanding skater on 
the ice. With the aid of the good ice h e 
was truly a whirlwind. The Aggie squad

foul shots, had Smith | assessed the same 
ability the outcome might have been

margin up to the last period when Keed 
and Mahoney drew their team to safety 
by successive baskets.

celebration was an exhibition of the 
progress made by the paper during its 
short existence. There was also a series 
of talks on journalism by men prominent 
in that field. Another feature, which 
lasted during the whole five days, was an 
exhibition of the newspapers of other 
colleges. The publications of 150 colleges, 
representing 44 states, were shown in the 
students' library.

| Many Aggie Men 

See Sun's Eclipse 

I Photos Taken May Prove of Some 
Value to Science. 

Getting up in the early morning hours 
I with a temperature well below zero, over 
150 Aggie students went with an equal 
number of Amherst students by special 
train to a point in Connecticut to view 
the wonders of the solar eclipse from a 
real point of vantage. On the train were 
I a large number of residents of Amherst 

|as well. 

The members of the party watched all 
I phases of the eclipse, but none seemed able 
to get everything. Because of the early 
hour of the eclipse, the advancing shadowy 
wall which was being watched for by some 
|wat rather hard to distinguish, but a few 
saw the phenomenon. The shadow bars 
whi.h tlitted over the ground were the 
source of much wonder and a few attempts 
|w« n made to photograph them. 

Many of the men making the trip carried 
learners and attempts were made to catch 
Ithe- various phases of the eclipse, some 
[taking the inner corona, some the outer 
land some the other phenomena. It is 
|ho|M-d that a few of the attempts will be 
Uucctsrful, as the photographs may prove 
lot help in making scientific determinations 
pegarding the sun, and Prof. Green of 
lAniherst College, who headed the expe- 
Idition, has asked for any successful prints. 


Twenty-Five Students Get Athletic 
Letters; Nine Win Academic Medals. 

Thirty six Aggie men and women were 
awarded athletic and academic honors .it

"How many people are ready to get 
down on their knees for the material 
things but who overlook the higher 
spiritual things to make us better men 
and women? We come to God and ask 
him for all sorts of toys. Then we fall 
into the idea that we didn't get any 
answer if He says 'No'." Such was the 
picture of the present-day attitude toward 
prayer which Bishop Edwin II. Hughes 
gave in his chapel sermon on the subject 
of prayer last week. Bishop Hughe* il 
from the Methodist Episcopal Church in 
Chicago, and his annual appearance .it 
our chapel exercises has come to In- 
looked forward to by those who have 
once heard him. 

"The region in which the human spirit 
works is always a region of tnysteiy. 
Likewise is the region of God's spirit 
always a mystery to us. So the subject 
of prayer, which embraces lx>th these 
regions, is twice a region of mystery. 
Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in 
my name, shall lie given unto you.' This 
whole statement sounds so simple that 
we are apt to think that it ot»its the 
mystery of spiritual life. You young 
people come about as near to explaining 
a blade of grass as you do to explaining 
( iod. Science does not explain everything 
for us. Whenever you ask an explanation 
of so simple a tning as a blade of grass 
from a student, he will have to explain 
his explanation. If he is perfectly honest 
he will admit that he cannot explain it. 
So when we come within the higher realm 
of prayer we should be very ready to 
admit the mystery of it." 

Bishop Hughes by way of analogy, cited 
his experiences with his children who 
were continually running to him with 
their wants — their prayers. He said that 
he could truthfully say that their prayers 
had always been answered — but usually 
with "No". "Not one of my children 
would be on this earth today if all its 
questions had been answered with 'Vis'. 
And yet we fall into the idea that when 
we ask God for all sorts of thing! we don't 
get any answer if he says 'No'." 

The ■pe ah e r said that the relation of 
the spirit of Cod to us in prayer is much 
like the relation of a father guiding a 
child, helping him to suppress his evil 
desires and encouraging him in his best 
moments. It is a big spirit helping a

The M.A.C. varsity basket hall team 

continued on their victorious course by 

defeating the hitherto unbeaten Williams 
quintet 88 DO 19 CM the home lloor last 
Thursday afternoon, The agates led all 
the wav I nit their margin was threatened 
at all times by the last Williams club and 
had they not exhibited a brand ol basket 
hall superior to their showing in any 
previous game this season the scon- would 
have been much closer. The teamwork 
of the AggMI live was the keynote ol theii 
victory; their passing was the best seen 
on the Hex»r this season. 

Captain Samuels started the scoring 
early in the First period and didn't slop 
until he had amassed a tally of ten 
|M)ints for his team. One of the most 
■pectaculaf plays of the game was 
Smiley's long shot OVOT the Williams 
defence in the first |x-ri<xl. Eater Samuels 
brought the crowd to their feci when he 
intercepted a Williams pass under the 
M.A.C. basket and dribbled down fie 
floor for a score. Partenheiuter as usual 
gathered several |>oints by his under the 
basket shots. Zinn, the giant Williams 
OBBter, ployed a sterling game and was 
roundly applauded by the spectators. 
Johnny Temple tcni|>orarily lost his 
shooting ability in the first |>criod but he 
brought his average up to standard near 
the close of the game when he <lrop|x>d in 
three floor baskets. His inimitable Moor 
work gave his team mates many op|X)r- 
tunities to score at close range. 

This game with its clean, tense action, 
the cleverness of the |x-rformers and the 
enthusiasm of the spectators was remin- 
iscent of the Stevens M.A.C. gaUM last 
season when the Agriculturists lost in the 
last few seconds of play. 

The summary:

Playing on a strange lloor ami pitted 

against the strongem team they have 

met since the C.C.N. Y. game the Abates 

rpvoed themselvet of championship calibre 
by conquering the Wesleyan live l".i to 2a\ 

Wesleyan has a ^imkI team, piwerful, 
nigged, aggressive, but they met a tartar 
in the Aggie outfit. This makes it three 
out of four for Aggie in the \1 A.C.- 
Wcslcv.ui series. 

The First half, like the early rounds of a 
bout between well ill. itched boxers, was 

played slowly and cautiously ; aach team 

was ■pairing lor .in opening. Wesleyan 
scored fust but the striped jerseyed agri- 
cultiuists soon tcx)k the lead and weie 
never headed. At the close of the fust half 
the score was 13 to 7 in favor of the 

Keali/ing that six |>oints were hardly a 
sale lead against such a team the Agates 
launched a furious offettOI which changed 
the tally to 28 to It iii the fust live 
minutes of the second periixl. Die play 
was scintillating in this half. Pint the 
home team would score, then the visitors. 
The ■pectatorn became a howling mob; 
alternately cheering as their favorites 
gathered Strength or groaning as the very 
capable Bay Staters increased their lead. 
Slowly the Wesleyan players | )u ilt up 
their score by long, fantastic shots over 
the A^gie defence till tin- land was cut to 
two |H)ints, 25-38. A notable feat for any 
team -to gather nine |>oints while holding 
their OpflOUOatS scoreless. A much greater 
leat against) a fast scoring team like the 
M.A.C. live-. But such a condition could 
not continue, and "Larry" Jones caged a 
follow through shot thereby breaking the 
scoring streak of Wesleyan. I'artcnlieiincr

Forcing their way through five-foot 
depths of drifting show, the Musical 
Clubs journeyed to Belchertown last 
Friday night and gave a concert in the 
High School auditorium. The trip was 
made in a large bus and two sedans, 
which were greatly hampered by the 
deep snow, although a detour was made 
to secure the best roads. At one point it 
was necessary to leave the road and travel 
through a meadow. At another place it 
was necessary to shovel a passage-way for 
some distance. Consequently, the men 
did not arrive until a half-hour after the 
concert was scheduled to begin. 

The concert was well-performed, and 
the numbers received the usual applause, 
the "college skits" proving especially 
popular. Dancing afterward lasted until 
after midnight, with the college dance 
orchestra furnishing the music. 

On Saturday night the Musical Clubs 
gave a concert in Bernardston. The trip 
was much less eventful than that of the 
previous evening. The concerts coming 
this week are in Hadley and Florence, on 
Wednesday and Friday, respectively.

Boston Symphony Orchestra, had given 
a well-received concert under the direction 
of Daniel Kuntz, the noted leader. 

Probably best received of all was their 
concluding number, "Hungarian Rhap- 
sody No. 2" by Eiszt. "Yalse Triste" by 
Ganne was well applauded, and Georges 
Laurent, with the flute, received much 
applause for a solo which occurred in a 
Musette by Gluck. Puccini's popular 
selection, "Madam Butterfly" was in- 
cluded in the program. 

Prof. Williams Demonstrates Prin- 
ciple Discovered by Venturi. 

"To bring together a great many 
diverse interests and show that they 
illustrate an underlying cause" was the 
purix>se of the- assembly talk last week 
by I'rof. S. K. Williams of Amherst 
College. The illustrated talk showeel some 

of the va ri o u s every-elav phenomena 

which may be explained by one of t In- 
laws of hydro-dynamics, known as the 
principle of Bernoulli. Venturi obs er ved 
that there is less pressure in a moving 
fluid than when the fluid is at rest, and 
the faster the motion the less is the- pres- 
sure. The principle thus explains how at 
a point of constriction in a flow of a fluid, 
as in a water pipe, the velocity is in 
creased and, contrary to what might he- 
expected, the pressure is decreased. 

The illustrations Prof. Williams gave 
of the working of this principle embraced 
widely varied interests. The Venturi 
water and gas meter, a spraying fire nozzle, 
a collision between two battleships, the 
action of a ball pitched to curve, and 
many other common phenomena were thus

There are those on the campus who 
seem to think that the fact that sweaters 
are awarded in Chapel is an excuse to 
wear them at this morning exercise. Of 
they have forgotten that "No sweaters 
shall be worn at Chapel or Assembly 
exercises." From the scattering of sweat- 
ers in chapels and as. inblies of late, there 
arc several individuals who need to be 
reminded that it is an accepted custom 
that this rule, made plain the Freshman 
year, will be observed. 

Only in rare cases is the same person 
the offender more than once. But there 
is always someone who forgets, or doesn't 
care, and those who have observed the 
custom resent it. It is a fine thing to own 
a sweater, especially these cold days when 
one welcomes any article of warmth, but 
wearing a coat never killed anyone. 

In all probability the custom grew out 
of a desire to make chapel and assembly 
a little more than ordinary, and that the 
student body might at hast make a pre- 
sentable appearance. This plan was DO 
doubt chosen, since with only coats in the 
audience, the dress would be more or less 
uniform. This wearing of sweaters might 
be placed in the same category with 
slamming of hymnbooks, and other 
annoyances, and simply needs S few word- 
as a reminder from time to time, that it 
may not beco m e a nuisance.

Winter Sports 

At last Aggie has a ski slide. That is, 

a chute down a very steep hill which re- 
sembles the slides we've heard about. So 
we may be classed with Dartmouth, and 
other large colleges who advocate and 
make much of this winter sport. True 
we have no team as yet, but that will 
naturally follow when the slide has been 
improved. But the fact that we have- 
even a slide is surely something to be 
proud of. 

It may not amount to much now, but 

anything that is really good is far from 

perfect at the start. There are many 

things which must be done to it in the 

spring to make it all that a slide should 

be, but in another year there should be a 

fine opportunity for those who enjoy the 

sport to use it as extensively as they wish. 

Many will also be glad to learn that 

eventually this slide will be available for 

tobogganing, so that those who are timid 

about skiing may take a swift ride on a 

safer vehicle. In time this feature should 

provide much fun and amusement, and 

it is hoped that it will be used by all, as 

it is built by students, on college property. 

The fact that the students built a ski 

slide goes to show that nearly anything 

along this line of interest to many could 

be undertaken with little difficulty. This 

brings us to the question of a golf course 

on our campus. Within the past year the 

students at Tufts College completed a 

six-hole course on their campus. If there 

is room for one on the Tufts campus there 

must be a chance for two or three on our 

own. We feel assured that there are a 

number of men in college who are inter- 

appointed chairman of the Pentosan 
Committee of the Cellulose Division of 
the American Chemical Society, and with 
Miss E. F. Chase, graduate assistant, is 
carrying on an investigation of pentosans. 

At the February meeting of the Con- 
necticut Valley Section of the American 
(hemical Society to be held in Spring- 
field on February 11, the four colleges in 
this neighborhood will report on research 
work in chemistry that is being conducted 
at these institutions. Dr. Peters will 
speak for M.A.C.

The Eclipse 

And there won't be another one for a 
century or so. 

Well, for the consolation of those who 
couldn't, either from impecuniosity or 
laziness, make the trip, we pass on this 
soothing information: 

It will all come out in the movies! 
If you rested your eyes and let the 
"sees all, knows all" eye of the camera 
eye do the work, you may finish by being 
just as intelligent as the weary patronizers 
of the sublimated milk train, and all that 
for thirty-five cents. 

And the moral of that is, — the early 
bird catches the train, but the late bird 
is sometimes right in getting left. 


And Speaking of Eclipses— 
You never miss the things you can't 
get along without till you haven't got 

Meaning what? 

In this case, that we've been taking 
sunlight entirely too much for granted. 

The few minutes of eclipse-coldness 
showed us that very plainly. Without 
sunlight we would be — a collection of 
Lot's wives done in solid ice. 

That made us wonder if there wasn't 
something else that was equally indis- 
pensable that we were l>eing entirely too 
casual about. There was — a lot of it. 
Here are a few that we should all be 
thankful for at least once a day.

The Cider Press respectfully suggests 
the forming of a new team, to be ranked 
as a major sport; namely, a Fencing Team. 

They used to go in for Rowing. We 
still have plenty of rows, but it doesn't 
rank as a sport anymore. 

But as to Fencing— this would be 
peculiarly appropriate for us, because: 

1. There are lots of fences around 
here, and lots of places that ought to be 

2. Fencing has such a nice agricul- 
tural sound; we should be sure of large 
appropriations for its support. 

8. "Apple Judging Teams", yes. "Stock 
and Poultry Judging Teams", yes. So why 
not a "Fencing Team"? "A country is no 
stronger than its boundaries."

We liked what President Lewis said in 
Monday chapel about the foretelling of 
the exact time of the eclipse as demon- 
strating man's supreme dominance of 
natural forces. 

True. It wasn't so long ago that little 
boys jeered at the men in "them new- 
fangled horseless carriages" with cries of 
"Get a horse". Today the man driving 
a horse is quite as apt to be greeted with 
"Get a flivver!" as not. 
More than that —

ing) the first man to fly managed a few 
miles with wings of wax. Today man have

At a conference of college deans a few 
years ago, one of them characterized the 
month of. May for the senior in the general 
course as the most melancholy days, the 
saddest of the year, a very "gotterdamme- 
rung" for bewildered youth with a college 
education and not knowing what to do 
with it. The following is a summary of 
the provisions made by different faculties 
for bridging the gap between college and 

President Burton of Michigan said, 
"The state university must insist that the 
secondary school period is the time and 
place for the testing of abilities, the 
revealing of capacities and tastes, the 
period of self -discovery." Dartmouth has 
long recognized the need for educational 
and vocational guidance, Brown has its 
"Orientation Course", and a store of 
American c o lleges and universities have 
their deans of men and deans of women. 
The National Research Council issues 
interesting occupational leaflets for college 

Northwestern University employs a 
Director of Personnel in whose office 
are kept very complete (x*rsonnel records, 
including student rating scales, records 
of personal interviews, vocational in- 
clinations, and personal guidance to 
students. The University of Washington 
has a vocational secretary. The scope of 
his service includes the collection of data 
of value in advising undergraduates as to 
the course they should pursue and place- 
ment service for the meml>ers of the 
graduating classes. 

For several years the University of 
Montana has given freshmen a course of 
lectures called, "College Education". 
These lectures have been given largely 
by the president and the dean. They have 
dealt with choosing a vocation, choosing 
courses, personal and mental efficiency, 
loyalty and how to study. Yale now 
maintains a single freshman class un- 
differentiated as to the future intentions 
of the members. This class has its own 
separate dean and faculty. No freshman 
classes contain more than twenty-five 
students. A valuable asset of the fresh- 
man year is the counsellor system main- 
tained. The chief job of the counsellors 
is "to be at the disposal of youths ready 
for college life, for counsel and that sort 
of assistance which the mature can pro- 
perly render tto he immature in their 
work and problems of personal develop- 

A recent issue of the Harvard Alumni 
Bulletin has the following to say about 
"Lectures on the Vocations". "Theo- 
retically, the college graduate ought to 
be in a position to choose a career; prac- 
tically, he is often put to it to get a job. 
Getting a job is an immediate necessity 
with some men by the time they have 
finished their senior year, their hopes of 
graduate training, if they have any, 
waiting perforce on the accumulation of 
further funds; for others, getting a job 
is an alternative to choice of a career 
because they have never given careers or 
jobs their serious attention. A few men 
know what they want to do and what 
training it requires and have made their 
plans accordingly. The majority, whether 
they can afford further education or not, 
know little about vocations and are 
innocent especially of accurate knowledge 
as to the qualifications for happy and 
effective work in the callings they might 
enter, the rewards such callings offer, or 
the training they demand. Very few 
indeed have made a survey of vocations 
or tried to estimate their own fitness for 
success in any of them. The lectures on 
vocations are intended to stimulate upper- 
classmen to consider the problem of 
choosing a career and to give them in- 
formation about a number of the pro- 
fessions commonly chosen by college 

A committee on educational guidance 
at the University of Minnesota made an 
exhaustive report on the subject. The 
assertion is made by the committee that 
choices of vocation are now made by 
students for adventitious reasons and 
incidental motives, in partial or almost 
total ignorance of the activities, require- 
ments, possibilities, and limitations of 
the vocations which they choose. Not 
only does this report recognize "the 
obligation of the university to the task of 
discovering young people of natural 
gifts and training them accordingly, 
but it adds, "the possibilities of improved 
educational guidance through standard- 
ized testing, interest analyses, and per- 
sonal interviewing, are considerably great- 
er than current practice in student ad- 
visement utilizes."

meets the Harvard five on Friday night, 
and the University of New Hampshire 
quintet the following night. The Agates 
are anxious to duplicate their victory of 
last season over Harvard but the assign- 
ment is truly a difficult one. The Harvard 
team is a veteran one and has won four 
or five games, losing only to Columbia, 
26 to 21. The Harvard offence was 
rather weak in the Columbia game and 
unless strengthened before Friday may be 
responsible for another defeat. 

The Univ. of N. H. five lost to Connec- 
ticut Aggie by the scant margin of four 
points but defeated Clark 41 to 28 at 
Worcester. .New Hampshire also has a 
veteran team and the outstanding players 
are captain McKinley, center, and lact- 
eal', a forward.

seconds of play while the losers also in- 
creased their store by two points 

The first half of the game was slow, the 
antithesis of the second period which was 
a rugged, up and down, he-man contest 
replete with cleverness and ep eed on the 
part of both individuals and teams. And 
throughout the entire struggle shone little 
"Ray" Smiley. Smilcy's assignment was 
acting captain McLean of football fame, 
and high scorer of the team. However 
"Ray" in the role of Nemesis so thorough- 
ly shadowed and checked the big fellow 
that a single basket was his offering to 
his team's success, and Smiley counter- 
acted that basket by acquiring one him- 
self. Jones consistently out-tapped his 
opponent and Temple, although closely 
watched as "the offensive big gun of the 
Aggies," contrived to push through 
three double counters. 

McLean while unable to lose the 
sturdy little Smiley on the offense was a 
powerful unit in the Wcsleyan defense.

Last Tuesday afternoon the Aggie 
hockey team was defeat ed 3 to 2 by the 
Amherst six on the Aggie rink in a game 
greatly slowed up by a raging blizzard. 
The snow fell so rapidly that the ice was 
covered almost as soon as a large squad | 
of frosh had cleaned it and the wind blew 
with such force that the most ardent 
rooters for both teams stayed to watch 
only two periods. 

Both teams scored in the first period 
in spite of the difficulty of passing and 
shooting; but both scores were the result 
of freaks. Amherst scored first when 
II. Lawson shot the puck from behind 
the Aggie cage through a hole in the 
netting itself and then M. Cameron sent 
it back between the posts again. Moberg 
made the Aggie score when he shot the 
rubber from the side almost in a line with 
the front of the Amherst cage toward the 
goal tender himself. Leaycraft in an 
effort to stop it with his arm knocked it 
into the cage. Amherst rallied in the 
second period and tallied twice, and the 
Agates did the same in the final period 
but were able to score but once. 

Aggie presented no outstanding players 
in this game but their teamwork was far 
superior to that of the Sahrinas, who 
passed almost none, even allowing for 
the condition of the ice.

The fire drill system which has been in 
force for some time at the Abbey has 
proven unsatisfactory and has been re- 
vised. The new system is the result of a 
meeting which the fire committee, of 
which Klsie Nickcrson '2(5 is chairman, 
held with Miss Skinner last week. Miss 
Skinner on Tuesday evening at the Abbey 
explained the rules for fire drills and spoke 
of their importance.

also placed first in standard breeds, while

Proving Big Success 

Fifteen Blind Men Among the Stu-

A bill intended to restore to the trustees 
of the college most of the power they 
formerly had, has been recently intro- 
duced into the State Legislature and will 
come before public hearing some time 
this month. The bill is the product of 
the work of the alumni committee on 
administration, appointed last June im- 
mediately after the resignation of Presi- 
dent Butterfield. 

As to what the bill, known as House 
Resolution 807, is intended to accomplish, 
the Alumni Bulletin says, "The bill intro- 
duced asks directly for the restoration to 
the trustees of that authority which is 
essential to the effective administration of 
this or any other college. It asks nothing 
more. It does not seek exemption from 
the budget system. It does not seek in- 
creased appropriations. It seeks only to 
give the trustees a chance to do a decent 
job with what the Legislature allows 
them." The bill was introduced in the 
House by Representative < .eorge K. 
Pond of Greenfield. Representative Pond 
is an Amherst graduate, and has always 
worked in the interests of M.A.C.

The M.A.C. relay team finished last 
in the triangular race with the quartets 
from University of New Hampshire and 
University of Maine at the B.A.A. games 
in Boston Saturday. University of Maine 
finished first in the fast time of three 
minutes and thirty-five seconds. 

This quartet outclassed the Aggie 
team but the latter illicit have worried 
the New Hampshire runners had SnitTen 
not slipped at the start thereby losing 
ten yards which he was unable to make up. 
Zwisler who ran second tried to push 
himself in the first lap in order to run on 
an even par with the nearest Opponent 
but he handed Flendnp the baton with 
I still greater distance to make up. 
Flemings held his own and turned over 
the stick to Captain Ross with no greater 
loss. Ross, however, had too great I 
distance to gain to hurry the New Hamp- 
shire anchor man. 

The team races B. U. in the K. of C.

Aggie Defeats N. H.

crowds of the year the M.A.C. quin O 
■gain came into their own by defeati p

game at Durham. I lie Agates, bit h

night, followed the lull like hounds a . 

offered en unpenetrable de fence to ti j 

\. H. team. The home club, with two 
memtx-rs of last season's All- New 
England team in their lineup and a rat old 
of only one defeat this season, fought 
hard for the gMM but couldn't stand the 

■peed of the overtime period. 

Samuels started the scoring in the first 
ptrfod with ■ foul ■hot foUoWWd closely by 
Temple's long floor basket. After that 
N. II. tallied and the lead teetered bark 
and forth throughout the first half. 
"Sammy" drew two foul shots at the 
close of the period which gave Aggie a 
two point lead, 10 lo 8. 

The second half was a replica of tin- 
first. M.A.C. took the offense immediately 
hut N. II. gradually overcame the lead 
and McKinley tied the score in the 
closing seconds of the game, necessitating 

in overtime period. The N. H. five- scored 

first in the extra five minutes. Samuels 
evened the tally again with a long floor 
lu-ket and then a score resulting from 
clever passing, Temple to Smiley and 
hack to Temple again, put the game on

left back, covered the famed Metcutt 
thoroughly and was one of the strongest 
defensive players on the lloor. l"or N. H.

"Education really consists in enabling 
a man or helping a man to realize that he 
is alive," said President Bernard I. 
Bell of St. Stephens College in his chapel 
talk last Sunday, on "What is this 
existence and what constitutes the suc- 
cessful handling of it?" "An educated 
man," he said, "is a man who by the age 
of twenty-five has a fairly well worked 
out idea of life, and who by the age of 
thirty-five has a definite philosophy of 

Dr. Bell laid the basis of the treatment 
of the subject he had thus raised on a 
discussion of the answers he had received 
on directing to about 2(X) people of all 
kinds the question of why they were 
alive and what they must do in order to 
become successful. He said that all of 
the answers could be reduced to five — the 
only five that have ever been given — and 
four of these are not true. 

"The first answer is that a man's success 
may be determined by the extent of his 
possessions and his happiness by what he 
has. This is the answer of a simpleton. 
We don't have to live long to find a man 
with a million dollars who isn't worth to 
himself, to mankind or the God that 
created him the price of a two-cent postage 
stamp. We don't have to search much 
longer to find someone who hasn't a thing 
who is worth a great deal. 

"The second answer is that a man's 
success can be measured by his amuse- 
ments. Such men are much better than 
the first ones. They are at least pursuing 
something that has some connection with 
their soul. Men have in history fre- 
quently tried to find an end in pleasure, 
but every time he has, the pleasure has 
ceased to be a refreshment to his soul and 
has become as an opiate, a drug. 

"The third answer is the answer of the 
man who says he lives for power. He is 
not a vulgar lover of power who finds joy- 
in bossing people around, but one who 
believes he can lead men better than they 
can lead themselves. It is a wasteful way 
to seek life by the pursuit of power. You 
can't bring about peace by means of war 
"The fourth answer is a much nobler 
one. It is the answer of the man who says 
he will live for learning, for truth, for the 
discovery of the things his mind can learn, 
but man is not fundamentally a reasoning 
animal. The important things in life 
aren't the things you reason about; they 
are the things you feel.

The Musical Clubs gave two more 
concerts last week, Wednesday M Hadley 
and Friday in Florence. The Hadley 
leincert was given under the auspices of 
the senior class of Hopkins Academy, 
and was well attended. I nfluen ce d , 
perhaps, by the pri'sence of Prof. Rand 
and a number of fellow students, the 
clubs showed up to the best advantage- 
that they have this year. Church '2.">, 

Corwia '-'"i, Gutennaa *28aad Graat 18 

provided the senation of the evening with 
their clever skits. Dancing afterwards 
proved very tMjpular, as evidenced by the 

cro w d ed floor. 

The Florence concert has the reputation 
of iK-ing one of the most enjoyable twain 
of the Musical Clubs' season, and this 
year's was no exception to the rule. 
I'.iisuiis Hall was the- scene- of action, 
the Laymen's League being the guaran- 
tors. Although handie appe-d by the 
,il ise-m-e of M unusually large number 
of men, the clubs put on a very 
performance, and the dancing was better 
than that. Owing to the drifted snow 

encountered oa the way, the- concert was 

late in starting. It was the unanimous 
opinion that Florence fully sustained her 
reputation of being able to give the boys 
a good time. 

Next Friday the clubs will entertain 
in Springfield, and on Saturday they will 
DC seen in notion in Stockbridge Hall as 
a part of the celebration of Mid Winter 
Alumni Day.

That France was more than any Other 
country responsible for the great World 

War was the astonishing statement made 
at assembly by Prof. Harry Barnes of 
Smith College. The historian said if we 
were to arrange the- unportanl belligerent 
nations in the- order of the-ir respective- 

rcepmniihilitire lor the war, the? list would 

read: |- ranee-, Russia, Austria, 

and England, end that impartial investi- 
gation of the causes of the war entirely 
upset the popular impression, which he- 
once held, that (iermanv was the- source 
of the trouble, for the foctl revealed show 

beyond doubt that the atham -s of France, 

particularly with Russia, wen- more- 
offensive than ele-fetlsive-. 

The speaker said that the war has 
proved to U- a gnat disap|>oint ment. It 
did not make the world safe for democracy ; 
it elid not end war; it was not I war of 
idealism. Europe is more- war-like than 
ever before; we have- the most unjust 
peace in years; the Euro|>ean countries 
have suffered an enormous increase ot 
indebtness and in many countrie-s arma- 
ments are larger than Ix-fore the- war. 
"The World War has convincingly prove- 1 
that you can't end war by war." 

"War will never end war, ami man will 
never l«: scared out of war because- of its 
consequences," he said, emphasizing the 
need of permanent world peace. "If this 
is the case we must investigate and remove 
the causes of war. We have got to attack 
the fact that man is a fighting animal ami 
divert it with games and such diversions. 
We have got to teach that war is not 
commercially profitable. France could 
have bought Alsace for half her war 
debt. We have got to teach the devilish 
nature of war and cease to eulogize war 
heroes. In their stead we must hold up 
as our heroes those who have been victori- 
ous in the field of science. Last of all 
we must teach history honestly."

We do not wish to go into a lengthy

factions at the Capitol are taking pains 
to do this very thing. We do, however, 
wish to have it understood that we stand 
behind the man, in spite of the incrimi-

him, and to state that we have every con-

and his sterling character. In short, we 
are still behind him.

The Academic Hour of Trial 


Letter Awards 

With the recent awarding of letters and 
sweaters to the members of the 1924 
football team the question has arisen as 
to whether there were too many straight 
Ms awarded, with not enough aMa's. 
We wish to take up the matter at some 
length, in an endeavor to suggest a means 
whereby there will be a distinction be- 
tween the men who actually won their 
letter as members of the Variety and those 
who deserved some recognition after 
several seasons of untiring effort. 

For the past two or three years at 
least, there has been an all too apparent 
scarcity of the aMa on the campus; in 
fact, it is doubtful if more than four have 
appeared in that time. Surely there have 
been more than that number awarded. 
And there is a reason for this absence of 
this insignia. There are relatively so few 
of these given out in comparison to the 
straight M's that a man wearing one 
feels that he is different, and somewhat 
under-rated by others. This feeling is 
entirely natural and to be expected, for 
no one wishes to be practically alone in 
the matter of wearing seemingly singular 
apparel. One cannot help but feel this 
degraded attitude of the possessor of an 
aMa, since this very subject has been the 
topic of many a discussion. 

Then there is the matter of a distinction 
between the man who took part in the 
main games of the season and the one 
who aided in making victories possible, 
indirectly through being on B team or 
the scrubs. One letter should be no more 
important than the other, but could not 
a straight M l>e made to signify that the 
wearer had participated in the actual 
struggles, and had merely carried the 
teachings of the substitute into the line 
of battle? Upon this new basis of award 
the value of the aMa would be raised, the 
value of the M would remain the same, 
and with more of the former to be worn, 
the owners would feel different about 
wearing them. As a consequence we would 
have more of what has almost become an 
extinct custom of wearing the aMa. 

The Collegian board simply states its 
views thus on a question which it feels is 
of vital interest to the college. In all 
probability there are those who have 
other ideas upon the same matter. We 
would welcome any suggestions, com- 
munications or such ideas, in an endeavor 
to proper ty orient this really critical 

Will This Effect You? 

It has recently been learned that there 
is a movement on foot to place all extra- 
curriculum activities on a point basis. If 
the efforts of those who are most interested 
in this project are rewarded, we feel that 
it will be a great step in the right direction. 
It is all too apparent that there is a need 
for some such system, whereby a man 
will only be allowed to carry so many 
credits in activities, whether athletic or 
academic. Thus individuals will not be 
permitted to try to do too much outside 
of their regular college courses. 

Briefly, the plan is to consider each 
activity worth so many credits, perhaps 
a major two and a minor one. The number 
allotted to each to be determined by the 
authorities. Then no one will be per- 
mitted to carry over a maximum number 
of credits, this figure also to be set by 
those in direct charge. 

In a few instances there are men in 
college who are trying to do too much 
outside work, and, as a result, not only 
is their required work suffering, but there 
are conflicts between the various activities. 
It is hoped, and seems almost certain, 
that this new system will make it impos- 
sible for anyone to become overburdened 
with extra work. 

In all probability many revisions will 
be advisable from time to time, to meet 
varying requirements, but in its funda- 
mentals the plan is an excellent one, and 
feel that the sooner it is put into 


operation, the better it will be for every- 
one concerned. 

At the Table 

1. It is not proper to sit down at a 
dinner or banquet until the host, hostess 
or toastmaster sits down, when all the 
guests are at their places. 

2. Soup should be sipped from the 
side of the spoon, not from the front. 

3. It is improper to break saltines or 
square crackers into the soup. Dot 
crackers should be dropped in one at a 

4. In using the knife and fork, the 
elbows should be kept close to the sides. 

5. In eating with the fork, after 
laying down the knife, the food should 
be brought up to the mouth, without 
bending to meet it. 

"M" Sweaters and 
The League of Violets 

The League of Violets is composed of 
those shy souls who, having worked for 
and won an "M" sweater, shrink from 
appearing in public with that same white 
"M" blazoned on their manly maroon 
So they wear the sweaters inside out. 
They remind one of the silver-lined 
black clouds in the Sunday School song 
which also wore themselves "inside out, 
to show the lining." 

So appropriate for the Violets! One 
must admit that those "M" 'sare horridly 
obvious, and everyone would know at 
once that one had lx;en on a Massachusetts 
Agricultural College team. The shrinking 
violets could never brook such a crude 

Of course, this may be a misjudgment. 
It may be that the actuating motive is to 
keep the "M" 's clean. Commendable, 
highly commendable. 

Still, it is possible to have them washed. 
Or might it be laziness? Hardly, or 
the wearer would not have his letter at all. 
The next time you see a sweater so 
worn, don't seem to notice it. It must 
embarrass a Violet to have even the 
fugitive stitched outlines of his "M" 


English Department, please note 

The most vitally wanted course on 
our campus at present is one on "Public 
Speaking for Public Speakers". 

Assembly speeches especially would get 
across better if the speakers could be 
taught not to: 

1. Read at us, with their heads down. 

2. Recite their stuff, in a monotone. 

3. Expound didactically, with an air 
of "I'm telling you, so this is so." 

4. Pull the old line of starting off with 
a local wise crack. 

5. Make personal allusions to the past 
career of President Lewis. 

6. And never be sarcastic about our 
inattention arising from the above causes. 

P.S. The Department will also please 
overlook the quality of our own English 
in this note! 



Still Behind Him 
SoflM little time ago, upon the appoint- 
ment of Harlan F. Stone to the office of 
U, S. Attorney General, a space in theac 
columns was de v o t e d to our appreciation 

of the tribute paid this man who began a 
fcucce'-sful college career somewhat un- 
successfully at MAC We even went so 
far as to lay claim to him as an Aggie-

Office, and hoping that he would attack

And that's that! 

It is not surprising that students should 
be substantially in accord among them- 
selves in feeling that the scholastic milleni- 
um will have arrived when the examina- 
tion has disappeared, forever from the 
calendar. The dates of mid-years are 
marked not in red but in the most sombre 
black. Even so the criminal at the dock 
must regard his approaching hour of 

The first objection bears on the useless- 
ness of the test and its inaccuracy in the 
grading of a class. It is declared that the 
examination furnishes no real measure of 
the student's knowledge of the subject, 
but only of the intensity of his cramming 
during the few hours immediately pre- 
ceding the ordeal. It is further said that 
the ability to write a good paper is 
dependent largely on temperment and 
nervous condition, and that many a 
student fails because of his inability to 
tell what he knows. 

The second allegation is true beyond a 
doubt. The first may or may not be true 
in any particular instance. When it is, 
the fact constitutes a rather grave in- 
ductment of the examiner. A paper 
properly prepared can be relied on to 
reveal the difference which results from 
real study and thought and that which 
grows out of a feverish conning and 
partial memorizing of a set of seminar 

Both of these attacks, however, regard- 
less of the truth of their premises, ignore 
the very close parallel between the 
questions on an examination and the 
problems which a graduate will have to 
confront in business or professional life. 
Few men are so happily situated that they 
are able to take an indefinitely long time 
for the solution of each problem that 
arises in their lives. Most of us work under 
pressure. Most of us are confronted on 
many occasions by the necessity of giving 
the best answer possible within a certain 
very limited space of time. Most of us 
have had the experience of having to 
acquire the largest possible amount of 
information on a comparatively new 
subject within a few weeks or days. It 
is then altogether proper that the ex- 
amination should furnish a text of tem- 
perament and calmness under fire, as 
well as familiarity with the subject 
matter of the course. 

While there is much to be said against 
the examination system, the deficiencies 
centering about the other factor in the 
problem, namely the student, are not in 
the least insignificant. The "bluff thru" 
system is well known and there are many 
who still suppose that they can entirely 
dodge an examination. One is reminded 
of the youth who told his boss, "Sir, I 
do not know how much business we did 
in Kansas last year, but I have taken 
the trouble to find out that the population 
of Rotterdam is 510,000." 

Akin to deliberate dodging is the failure 
to answer a question completely because 
it is not comprehended as a whole. Only 
the exceptional student seems to be able 
to read a query of a hundred words set 
in a single paragraph and gain any connec- 
ted idea of what it is all about. The power 
of concentration on what is read seems to 
have vanished forever from the earth. 
Conundrums used in Army psychological 
tests such as, "If New Orleeans is not the 
capital of Tibet, and if the distance from 
Shanghai to Vancouver is not so great 
as that from Indianapolis to the moon, 
put a cross in the circle which is not 
outside of a square in the lower left hand 
forner of a triangle containing a pentagon 
with six polka dots," were useful for 
other purposes than to drive the student 
mad. They had to be read attentively, 
word by word, and the luckless candidate 
who attempted to follow the usual ex- 
amination procedure of shooting a single 
piercing glance at the question as he 
started to write might as well have saved 
himself even that glance. 

Then again there is the problem of 
being able to use the English language 
properly as a rqedium of expression. It 
would be conservative to say that less 
than fifty per cent of all students of 
collegiate grade phrase their examina- 
tions as a whole in anything resembling 
literary Engnah, Much of this English 
is not only non-literary but positively 

The si u< lent is quite often liable to 
forget that the professor is too busy to

The Collegian accepts no responsibility for opin- 
ion* voiced in "The Forum." It aims to serve as 
a means of giving expression to student opinion, 
and will print any views expressed rationally 
sanely, unless the editors feel that they are jimi- 
tied in suppressing them because of unfair per- 
sonal attack. Communications must be limited to 
500 words. 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

What repelling force does this word 
manager seem to have at Mass. Aggii ■'. 
One would think it were a poisonous pill 
which no one wants to swallow, rather 
than a good position which only a good 
man can hold. 

Here is a job which gives one the best 
experience for knowledge which can not 
be found in books, for experience which 
cannot be bought, for friendships which 
one never dreams of, for pleasures and 
memories which last longer than the letter 
a man receives and yet with all these 
virtues this position is spurned by the 
student body. 

Do we go to college to gather stores of 
knowledge? If we do we find little use for 
it in the outside world unless we follow a 
science such as Chemistry, Botany or the 
like. What lasts longer and brings us 
more happiness in the years to come is 
knowledge or our ability to know and 
understand our fellowmen with all his 

Here is a position which enables a man 
to come in contact with his fellow- 
students, an ideal opportunity for charac- 
ter study which will be so helpful to him 
in the years to come and no one answers 
the knock. It knocks but once. 

When I think of the experience, the 
fun, and good fellowship I got out of 
baseball, I cannot see why a man not in 
the sports doesn't go out for manager. 
Playing baseball was just a means to an 
end as is the case with a manager.

citizen should attain the high ideal set 
up in Gelett Burgess's quatrain: 

A thoughtful man will never set 
His tongue a-going and forget 
To stop it when his brain has quit 
A-thinking thoughts to offer it. 

The fairest test of a student's knowledge 
of a subject is given by putting a question 
requiring some original thought, a ques- 
tion for which no direct and complete 
answer can be found in print anywhere 
and then allowing the use of lecture notes 
and books during the examination. 
With the usual limitations of time, the 
subject matter of the course must be well 
in mind, and there must also be a thorough 
familiarity with the literature of the sub- 
ject, in order that the desired information 
can be located before the close of the test.

Winning the West 

The General Electric Com- 
pany provides for agricul- 
ture little motors that do the 
farm chore s and gn at ones 
that operate mammoth 
pumps to irrigate vast 
stretches of arid valleys. 

If you are interested in 
learning more about what 
electricity is doirg, write 
for Reprint No. AR391 con- 
taining a complete set of 
these advertisements. 

Irrigation by electrically driven pumps has made 
hundreds of thousands of acres of desert land in the 
Intermountain West blossom like the rose. 

For a few cents a month per acre, electricity— the giant 
worker— brings the life-giving water from distant lakes 
and rivers to rainless valleys, producing rich harvests 
of fruits and vegetables, cereals and forage. 

What electricity is doing for the farmer is only a 
counterpart of what it is doing for Industry, Trans- 
portation, City and Country lif j or any of the profes- 
sions. It is a tool ready for yoar usj and which, wisely 
used, will make the impossible of today an accomplished 
fact tomorrow. 

How electricity does these things is important to the 
student in a technical school— but whet electricity can 
do is important to every college man or woman, no 
matter what their life's work may be.

The condition is briefly this. The College 
used to be managed by a board of trustees who 
elected a president and ran the College on what 
they received from the legislature. They made 
an annual report and accounting to the ( .overnor. 
Seven years ago in the interests of centralized 
control of public work the State consolidated all 
its departments and bureaus into a smaller 
number of larger departments. 

At the same time an "Anti-aid" law limited 
State appropriations to State institutions. 
M.A.C. therefore had to become a State institu- 
tion, and be merged in the State Department 
of Education, with numerous other State in- 
stitutions. But M.A.C. was the only State 
institution which had ever been a college or 
desired to go on being a college. The Com- 
missioner of Education, became ex-officio a 
member of the trustees. There is every reason 
to think that he wants M.A.C. to go on being a 
college. . . 

After the College had become a unit in a 
State department the State budget system was 
introduced. It became operative through a new 
department, sui>er-im|>osed upon the system of 
State departments, with almost unlimited 
authority to supervise, restrict, discourage and 
deny expenditures in all departments. 


The budget system has saved the State a 
lot of money. M.A.C. has no desire to be ex- 
empted from the budget system. But here is the 
hitch. Along with the budget came a Depart- 
ment of Administration and Finance. That 
department was established to control the 
administrative routine of bureaus and clerkships. 
It was not conceived or set up as an organism 
adequate for the control of a college. It has 
however used its blanket i>ower over State 
institutions to control to the most trifling detail 
the College expenditures. Of course that means 
control of the details of administration. 

So college administration for the last few 
years has consisted of writing letters or riding 
Central Massachusetts trains to Boston to seek 
an audience with some official or other on the 
question of whether he would consider printing 
a spray bulletin this month, or would he insist 
on waiting until the spray season is over? This, 
mind you, after the Legislature had passed an 
appropriation on which it expected the College 
to do its work effectively. 

This condition was up at the last annual 
meeting of the Associate Alumni in June. A 
committee was instructed to work with the 
trustees and see what it could do to correct the 
situation. The committee held conferences with 
the college officers and became as convinced as 
they were that the College could not be operated 
effectively under divided authority and detailed 
long-distance control of administration.

take direct action themselves, the trustees, or 
most of them, would welcome the action pro- 
posed by the alumni. The committee has been 
unable, however, to get from the trustees any 
answer to a question it filed with them, asking 
whether or not they had the necessary authority 
to administer the College affairs. The trustees 
have, since our meeting with them, appointed a 
committee to secure from the Attorney General 
a definition of their authority. 


On the last day for filing bills for this 
Legislature, the Alumni Committee on Ad- 
ministration, filed a bill in the name of the 
Associate Alumni of M.A.C. which would restore 
authority to the trustees to run the College on 
their annual appropriation without interference 
from the State Department of Administration 
and Finance. 

That bill will come up for hearing sometime 
in February — before the joint committees on 
Education and Administration. Its fate depends 
on a favorable report from those committees. 
The alumni Committee on Administration re- 
ported its action to the Executive Committee 
of the Board of Directors of the Associate 
Alumni on January 24 and was instructed to 
organize the presentation of the case at the 
hearing. It is doing so. 


The bill introduced asks directly for the 
restoration to the trustees of that authority 
which is essential to the effective administration 
of this or any other college. It asks nothing 
more. It does not seek exemption from the 
budget system. It does not seek increased 
appropriations. It seeks only to give the 
trustees a chance to do a decent job with what 
the Legislature allows them. If this bill passes 
we shall have a right to expect the trustees to 
make it possible for the people at the College 
to do their work. That's what trustees are for. 
It's all they're for. Our trustees haven't been 
permitted to exercise this primary function. 

If the bill doesn't pass, we shall have to 
bring it up again. Somebody has got to have 
authority to run the College, or shortly we 
aren't going to have any college worth running. 
This bill ought to pass. It won't pass unless it's 
pushed. Will you help to push it? Here's what 
you can do. 


First, attend the hearing if possible. I 1 
will help to have you there. 

Second, let your representative know what 
the situation is and that you want him to help 
correct it. 

Third, pay your dues if you have not, and 
take out a sustaining membership if you are able 
— give us some ammunition to fight with. 

Fourth, talk about it to anyone who has 
any influence, and see that he gets the idea. 
Don't let anybody tell you we want the earth 
or that we want to wreck the budget system. 
We want the college to do its work within its 
appropriation and in the budget system. We 
want to give Aggie a chance. Will you help? 


It would be hard to arrange a system for 
operating any institution which would promise 
greater inefficiency and wastefulness and more 
unsatisfactory conditions for all concerned with 
it, than the system by which the State has 
recently been trying to operate the College. The 
alumni committee went to the trustees early in 
January to discuss the situation with that 
body. It reported to the trustees the action of 
the alumni association and the condition its 
investigation showed in the administation for 
the College. It informed the trustees that it 
was prepared to present one or more bills to 
the Legislature to correct a condition which 
seemed to make first grade college work im- 

It was apparent that the trustees had felt 
their position very keenly, had discussed it a 
great deal but had failed to arrive at a conclu- 
sion on which they could act. The committee's 
impression was that though they hesitated to

New Poultry Disease Found 

A new poultry disease has recently 
been discovered in various parts of the I 
country which is beginning to cause 
alarm among poultry raisers. This is 
believed to be a European malady known 
as "Huhnerpest," which is quite prevalent 
along the Mediterranean coast. Dr. Pyle 
of the department of veterinary science 
here has recently been in Pennsylvania 
where there have been cases believed to | 
be "Huhnerpest." Since this disease is 
very similar to fowl cholera, the two are 
very likely to be confused unless very 
careful analysis are made. Those in the 
department of Veterinary Science have 
recently been searching for symptoms o: 
"Huhnerpest" in this state but no CM0 
have been discovered, although there 
was thought to have been a case in 
Southwick, Mass, until analysis made bj 
the veterinary department at this college 
showed that it was fowl cholera.

Inability to maintain their customary 
speed and to meet the Harvard five with 
an adequate man-to-man defence was 
the cause of Aggies defeat at Cambridge 
last Friday. The score, 37 to 21, is a 
poor indication of the equality of the 
two teams. Harvard took the offensive 
at the start of the game and, although 
they were unable to penetrate the MAC 
defence, within a few minutes of the start 
of the game seven points had been scored 
without a single tally by the visitors. 
Smiley caged a foul shot for the first 
M.A.C. point and then the Agrarians 
uncorked their only real offensive drive 
of the evening. They gathered eleven 
points while holding Harvard scoreless. 
Smiley to Temple, then two points, or 
Jones to Samuels to net was the shooting 
order for several minutes, but after this 
magnificent outburst of speed they 
slackened and the Crimson slowly over- 
took them. A foul shot followed by a 
floor basket gave Harvard a one point 
lead which they never relinquished. The 
half ended with the score 12 to 11 in 
Harvard's favor. 

The home team also got the jump in 
the second half and after drawing the 
Agates out of their five man defence 
scored almost at will. The Crimson 
players, faster than the visitors, scored 
chiefly through the expedient of racing 
their guards to the basket and caging 
the ball at close range. Harvard scored 
nearly twice for every M.A.C. basket in 
the last period. 

Smith, the Harvard forward, had a 
great night, scoring first at long range 
over the Aggie defence and latter from 
seemingly any place on the floor. Jones 
who substituted for Smith in the latter 
part of the game was nearly as successful. 
None of the Aggie players displayed their 
usual ability but Samuels more consistent 
than the rest, gathered ten points to his

team defeated Cusliing Academy on the

The game was close throughout. The 
Agates' greatest asset was the ability to 
make use of fouls. Jensen shot seven out 
of eight tries while the team sunk eleven 
out of thirteen. Jensen starred for 
M.A.C. while Wat kins deserves the

The freshman basketball team lost to 
Deerietd Academy -i7 to 39 in the Drill 

Hall last Friday afternoon in a rough but 
interesting scrap. By defeating the frosh 
aggregation the visitors added another 
victory to their so far unblemished record 
tor the season. Allison, former Holyoke 
High center, was the outstanding player 
on the floor with the formidable string 
of twelve baskets. Deerfield's play was 
marked by long passes and clever floor 
work. The frosh were aggressive and 
ducked well. Reed was high scorer for

between the Junior varsity and a pick-up

Mid- Winter Alumni Day 

Draws Big Crowd Back 

\lumni Approve Action of Committee on Administration 

and Finance 

\ gathering of IflO alumni of the college, 
rhat WM unprecendented for numbers at a 
mid-winter muring, pw ready approval

report of the committee on Administra- 
tion, which has been instrumental in 
introducing into the State Legislature 
,| u . bill which aims to restore to the 
college some of the power they formerly 
.1 to regulate the administration 
of the college. 

About 180 alumni, of which over a 
hundred had come from out of town, were 
,,„ the campus Saturday and Sunday for 
the eleventh Mid-Winter Alumni Day and 
f or the fraternity initiation banquets. 
1 ,,,-t \iar's gathering numhered less than 
lull of this year's number, which almost 
rivaled the commencement meetings. 
After the sports of the morning, lunches 
wen given by several of the departments 
to ihe» alumni. The business meeting 
after the lunches was probably the most 
important part of the program. An enter- 
tainment by the musical clubs and the 
Roister Quieten end interclass sings were 
enjoyed later in the afternoon at Stock- 

bridge Hall. 

In the evening the fraternity initiation 

banquets were held.

Basket Ball Team Has 

Hard Games Ahead Yet 

Dartmouth Victory Gives Team Con- 
fidence but Not Overconfidence. 

In defeating the Dartmouth quintet 
last week the Aggie five accomplished a 
feat never before equaled by an M.A.C. 
basketball team. That was the fourth 
win for Aggie in eight starts against the 
Big Green teams but never before has 
an Aggie team conquered the leader of 
the highly reputed Eastern League, and 
by this accomplishment alone does the 
M.A.C. team merit attention of the sport 
writers in the consideration of Eastern 
champions. Not only does the team as a 
unit deserve recognition but the individ- 
uals comprising the team are worthy of 
distinction also. Temple, with his eight 
floor baskets against Dartmouth, Samuels 
for his cleverness on the floor and his 
consistency in scoring, and Smiley for 
his perfect passing, his scoring ability 
and his clever defensive work are all 
likely choices for positions on the mythical 
All-Eastern team. 

Thus far this season the team has lost 
but two games, one to C.C.N. Y. and the 
other to Harvard. But the remaining 
games are as difficult as any of the earlier 
ones. Springfield, whom they meet next 
Wednesday, may prove a tartar in spite 
of the fact that their season has been but 
indifferently successful. It promisse to 
be a spirited game and one worth traveling 
miles to see. The following Wednesday 
Conn. Aggie, with a colorful record behind 
her and anxious to duplicate the victory 
of their football team, comes to M.A.C. 
to match ability with the "Giant Killers", 
the team that broke the winning streak 
of two of the best teams in the East, 
Williams and Dartmouth, and one which 
has yet to be defeated on its home floor.

J. B. Knight '92 Returns After 25 
Years in India. 

Speaking at chapd exercises last Sun- 
day, the Rev. W. A. Atkinson ol Roches- 
ter, Pa., treated the book of Job as the 
greatest drama that has ever been 
written. "It deals with the most ini|>or- 
tant question in religious life," he said. 
"It does more than that; for it contains 

the answer to that question." Dr. 
Vtkinson was for m erl y an army chap 

lain during the war, and later spent I 
lew yuan in Amherst, lie is now past,.! 
of the First Presbyterian Church at 

Rochester, Pa, 

The preacher said that as children we 
ask the question, "Does it pay to be 
good?". He re-told this Biblical story in 
which Job, a prosperous and wealthy 
man in his community, was inflicted \>\ 
Satan with all the miseries thai might 
conic to him in the way ol loss ol his 
properly ami his children, and then gnai 
physical discomfort caused by a horrible 
disease. In the heroic faith of Job, who 
under these circumstances was si ill able 
to praise the name of the Ford, the 

preacher found ■ dramatic aneewr for 

the childish question which so many of 

us ask. 

It was as one of the early graduates of 

the C o lleg e who had led the i inn of a 
true pioneer in agriculture that Mr. J. 
15. Kntght of the class of FS!>2 returned 
to the college after an absence of nearly 

twenty-five years, to tell of the kind of 

work he had been doing since his gradu- 
ation from M.A.t '. 

After spending a few years in England, 
Mr. Knight was sent by the British 
Government to India where he assumed 
the task of establishing the first agricul- 
tural college — indeed one of the first 
educational institutions — that backward 
country knew. The total strangeness of 
this land in which he had to work, with 
its primitive civilization, its superstitions 
and religions, its tropical climate and its 
problems, was the interesting material 
on which his talk was based. Mr. Knight 
was able, after his work in India for 
twenty years, to give fascinating accounts 
of that country with which we are so 
slightly acquainted. Probably the most 
striking characteristic which he attributed 
to the people was their superstitious 
adherence to their religions. 


The University of Kansas has recently- 
held a unique banquet which they etrmed 
their "Dad's Day Banquet." More than 
378 fathers and sons were present, the 
largest crowd ever accommodated. A 
prize was given the fraternity having 
the largest number of dads present. 

Roister Doisters 

Open Play Contest 

Two Prizes to be Awarded this Year. 

Once more the Roister Doisters are 
conducting a one-act play contest, and 
this time, in order to stimulate greater 
interest, the society is offering two prizes 
instead of one. The announcement and 
rules covering the competition follow. 

On o(M-ning the Roister Doister one 
act play contest this year it is hoped that 

com p e ti t i on will Im- much keen er than it 

has In-en in the past. Instead of the single 

prize ol last year, two prizes will be 
awarded in the present contest. The 
winning plays will very likely be prodttt ed 
in the Aggie Revue. If sufficient interest 
is taken in this and following contests, 
and the quality of plays submitted merits 
their production, the Aggie Revues of 

the future will be r epre se n tative not 

only of student talent but originality as 
weel. The Upper classmen are particularly

To Hold Conference 

of Valley Colleges 

Amherst, Mount Holyoke, and Smith 
to Join with M. A. C. 

A conference has been proposed by 

students of Smith College to be made up 
of representatives from Smith, Mount 
Holyoke, M.A.C, and Amherst. The 

tentative dates for this conference are 

April 34, 2o, and 2D, and will be held at 
the Northfield Hotel, Northfield. It is 
hoped that this will be a beginning for 
regular meetings of students from these 
four colleges for the purpose of discus- 
sions on religious questions. Each college 
will be r ep r e s ent ed by tea students. 


It has been found necessary to hold 
the Flly Ney- Mabel Farrar concert, 
one of the series of the Amherst Con- 
certs, on tomorrow night, February 12, 
instead of Friday, February 27.

Action at Last 

With the introduction of a petition 
into the Legislature by the Associate 
Alumni of this college, in which it is asked 
"that the authority of the trustees of 
said college be denned", it seems that a 
great step has been taken in determining 
to what extent the trustees shall have a 
governing power over the college, and 
just how much the welfare of the institu- 
tion will rest with the dictates of a single 
individual. The resignation of former 
President Butterfield was the direct 
result of a restraining hand on the part 
of those higher up at the State House, 
and was a move which instigated the 
present action of our alumni. 

It is hoped that this petition will take 
some of the power of running this Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College out of the 
hands of those who are not vitally con- 
cerned with its administration, and place 
where it rightly belongs, with the 
istees. It is all too apparent that some 
•asures must be taken soon, if this 
stitution is to prosper under the ideals 
,>on which it was originally founded. 
We feel that this action on the part of 
the Associate Alumni is a wise step, and 
that if the situation is handled in the 
right way, the results will not only be 
gratifying to those most directly con- 
cerned, but will be a determining factor in 
the future of the college, which if not 
doubtful, is certainly very indeterminate. 

Christian Asso< iation had to go to the 
expense of hiring the Amherst Town Hall 
and trans|>orting its scenery and equip- 
ment down there, excuses which Blight 
have been avoided had the show b«M 
giVM in Bowker. And this in spite of the 
fad that every cent of profit from the 
shows was to be used right here on campus 
for the benefit of the entire student body. 
College authorities say that it is at;- inst 
the policy of the college to ix-rmit tilt use' 
of Bowker for benefit performances. Why 
should it he? Why should not our audi- 
torium be available for student affairs as 
much as the various rooms of the building? 
Ami as for benefit shows, how can the 
authorities take that stand and still 
permit the use of the auditorium for 
Social Union and Roister Doister enter- 
tainments? Surely they are distinctly 
benefit performances. The Social Union 
is, at least nominally, operated separate 
from the administration of the college, 
and the Roister Doister society is a purely 
student organization, and yet each gives 
shows in Bowker from which every cent 
of the profits goes into the organization's 
treasury. If ever there was a benefit 
performance, the Roister Doister shows 
are such. 

Our college authorities cannot be logical 
and still keep the attitude they now hold. 
Hither they ought to bar ALL money- 
making performances in Bowker or they 
ought to permit the athletic depart- 
ment and the Christian Association and 
other campus groups to make use of the 
hall when profits are to be used for 
campus betterment. And the latter is 
the better course, is it not?

Bowker and Benefits 

About ten years ago, Aggie was given 
what was to be the largest of her build- 
ings, Stockbridge Hall, in which w.i> ■ 
large auditorium to be used for college 
assemblies or such other gatherings as 
would naturally occur as part of the life 
of the college. Part of this intended 
purpose has been carried out; part has not. 
Not quite a year ago, after the most 
successful basketball season in years, the 
athletic department decided to give a 
benefit performance of local vaudeville 
for the purpose of presenting members of 
the varsity basketball team with gold 
basketball watch charms. Somehow or 
other, the athletic authorities were able 
to win the consent of the President to 
give the performance though he said after- 
ward he did not see how he had ever given 
that consent. At any rate, the perform- 
ance was given; it was given in Bowker 
auditorium; and it was purely a benefit 
affair for less than ten students. 

A few weeks later the M.A.C. Christian 
Association desired to hold a benefit show 
for the purpose of raising funds to carry 
on the religious work of the college, but 
could it get permission? Not much! The 
Christian Association did not have the 
influence of the athletic department, and 
while it was perfectly all right to give a 
benefit for eight or ten students, it was 
not all right to give one for the entire 
student body. There certainly seemed to 
be something rotten in Denmark. But 
grant that the permission for the first 
show was gained without the fuU realiza- 
tion of the authorities, if it were desired 
to have no precedent set, that permission 
should have been withdrawn before the 
show was produced. Not withdrawing it, 
the only fair thing for the authorities to 
do was to permit the C. A. show also to 
be held in Bowker. 

However, both last year and this year 
(and it was the recent show that called 
the matter to the attention again) the 


How many students were greatly 
aroused by the remarks made in assembly- 
two weeks ago by Prof. Harry Barnes of 
Smith College? A relatively small num- 
ber, as was shown by the few who took 
advantage of the opportunity to question 
Prof. Barnes regarding some of his seem- 
ingly bold statements, on Tuesday of 
last week. The general attitude of those 
who listened to the talk seemed to be 
one of "What difference does it make who 
started the war?" And that brings up 
the question of just how much college 
men, and especially those at M.A.C, are 
interested in diplomatic and political 
matters far remote from the general 
trend of college life. 

Is it that our time is too much taken 
up with studies? Do we fail to take time 
to peruse the daily papers for news of the 
outside world? Is it a case of complete 
ignorance of world-wide problems? Or is 
it that college men of today are content 
to let important matters rest with some- 
one else? 

There is no doubt but that Prof. Barnes 
stated apparent facts which were a com- 
plete surprise to all, since few have 
delved into the archives and documents 
which have recently come to light, to the 
extent that he has. And it is hard to 
believe that at least a few of these rash 
statements failed to arouse doubt in the 
minds of many. But the mere handful of 
students and faculty who met with Prof. 
Barnes on Tuesday is an indication that 
the majority were satisfied to take these 
assertions with a grain of salt. 

This is merely one instance where 
radical views which have been expounded 
from the platform have gone unchal- 
lenged. Don't the men of M.A.C. care? 
Are they more interested in college 
courses and activities? Or do they con- 
sider these speakers simply radical fanat- 
ics? Surely a college man should be able 
to boast of a meagre knowledge of some 
of the bigger problems which confront the 
world today. He should at least be able 
to discuss with some intelligence matters 
of vital interest to mankind. But the 
failure of such a speech as that of Prof. 
Barnes to bring out more than eight or 
ten who wish to know more concerning 
who started the World War clearly shows 
that either the student body as a whole 
do not understand the situation well 
enough to refute these statements, or 
else the attitude is one of indifference. 

In either event the conditions are 

Our Subways 
After shivering up hills and across 
campus one day, and swimming down and 
across the next, we have come to the 
conclusion that our communication facili- 
ties are highly inefficient. 
They are all above ground. 
That's all very well in spring, but in 
winter we waste at least a third of our 
ten across-campus minutes going side- 
ways and backwards. Not to mention 
slithering moistly through the inundated 

The remedy? Very simple. 

A subway system, from Math to Stock- 
bridge, Fernald to Coessmann, etc., — 
with a "Shuttle system" for other build- 
ings off those straight lines. Dry, well-lit 
passages, with no mud, no slush, no 
freezing, and no profanity. 
How does it sound to you? 


Incidently, one wonders if the Grounds 
Department would be in charge of such 

How far down does their jurisdiction 
extend anyway? 

This might be an interesting point for 
our fledgeling Solons to debate. 


Mostly "Lucy" 
For the benefit of the three generations 
of English students now present in college 
who have yawned through the simple 
sensuous sublimity of Mr. Wordsworth's 
decidedly simple "Lucy", we take great 
pleasure in presenting the lady somewhat 
metamorphosed in a short skirt and 
bobbed hair, and other modern improve- 
ments. Here then, we have the 1925 
model of Lucy. 
She dwelt beyond the street-car line, 

At a health resort called Dove — 
She made no dates, she had no man, 
And therefore, none to love. 

She's not there now, but few know that: 

My "Lucy" ceased to be — 
"Lucretia'"s in the movies — oh, 

The difference to me! 


And if that isn't simple ! 


Within the last fifty years there has 
been a constantly increasing interest in 
education among all classes of people. 
Once the principle of compulsory educa- 
tion for all had been accepted, there rose 
up a new generation determined to secure 
the benefits of free education for the mass 
of the people. The outside observer is 
bound to admit that the whole of modern 
education is in a state of flux and change; 
he often fails to find that bedrock of 
common sense which should be the only- 
sure foundation for our changing systems. 
The word "e-ducare" means literally to 
draw out, to develop; but what is it that 
is to be developed in the student? Some 
consider that physical growth and well- 
being is essential, others value intellec- 
tual training and achievement, others 
think that moral character is the gravest 
consideration,— a few define certain spirit- 
ual values as the ideal of all their efforts. 

An Appeal to 

M. A. C. Alumni 




1. When chewing food, the lips should 
be kept together. 

2. Bread should be broken into small 
pieces, not bitten from the whole slice. 

3. Butter should be spread on the 
whole slice or piece, not eaten in chunks. 

4. It is not considered good form to 
place either elbow on the table while 
eating, though the forearm may be 
rested lightly on the edge. 

5. It is improper to loll at the table.

"Three cheers for--" 
Since the beginning of recorded time 
(de we sound like a text-book?) philoso- 
phers have been discussing the "mysteri- 
ous affinity of threes". 

And we still furnish them with food 
for discussion. Why three cheers particu- 
larly? Why not a cheer, or two cheers, 
or even four? But we never do it that 

The short yell is tri-parted, and the 
long one tri-compounded. It is the per- 
fection of sound — there's something par- 
ticularly conclusive and satisfying in 
that "team, team, team" or whatever it is. 
The three-idea is so strong in our 
minds that we can even sing about giving 
"our college three times three" and be 
The only successful exception to this 

Rule of Three is the Amherst "Yea, ", 

and even that is three times as effective 
when the blank space is filled in by a two 
syllable word, making the whole a 
Three cheers for three cheers! 

There is a direct connection between 
European civilization and Greek thought. 
The student of Greek education finds two 
contrasting systems; that of the Spartans 
and that of Athenians. Spartan discipline 
has become proverbial, and indeed it 
produced a race of soldiers that for hard- 
ness and endurance has hardly been sur- 
passed. The more versatile Athenian 
despised such a narrowing of life and 
thought; he considered that education 
should be an all round development and 
should make for general excellence. A 
class of teachers called Sophists acquired 
fame in Greece; they included experts in 
all branches of science and learning, and 
contributed much to the subject matter 
of education. Many, however, were more 
intent on showing skill in argument than 
in seeking truth. Socrates saw the 
danger of such a system. Knowledge, he 
held, came largely through recollection, 
and afterwards through a process of 
intuition; the knowledge of self was the 
highest branch of learning. 

With the advent of Christianity came 
an entirely new ideal that found its in- 
spiration in the law of love. It was a new- 
conception of Truth revealed in the person 
of the Founder, who came to bear witness 
to the Truth. Thereafter, when the 
Church became organized and extended 
her influence, she gained a large measure 
of control in the matter of education. 
There were two main ideals of service; 
that of the monk, who renounced the world 
for a greater good; that of the knight, 
who sought to champion the cause of 
Truth and Justice in the world. In the 
eleventh and twelfth centuries there was 
the opportunity of combining the wisdom 
of the Greeks and the learning of the 
Arabs with the highest ideals of Chris- 
tianity. However, it has been left to a 
later century to reincarnate on earth 
that ideal of the Divine Wisdom. 

Following are some excerpts from a 
letter sent out by Head Coach H. M. 
(Kid) Gore, in an attempt to gather data 
for a complete history of football at Mast, 
Aggie. As may be seen the co-operation 
of all Alumni is urged. If you can help, 
do so by all means. 

"We want to know more about the 
beginnings of football at Old Aggie. 1 
have been given to understand that foot- 
ball was started by Francis Codm.m, 
class of 1880. Mr. Codman is not living, 
but we would like to get all the inform* 
tion possible relative to his connection 
with Aggie football, just what year it 
started, and any interesting side light, 
that some alumnus may recall. 

"James Halligan, 1900, captain of the 
1899 team and varsity coach at Aggie 
for several years following, is responsible 
for the statements that during his time 
Aggie made several very distinct contri- 
butions to the game, including the strap 
with a handle on it by which a back mu 
picked up and carried along by his team- 
mates (later adopted by Dartmouth) 
and the roving center. 

In the picture of the 1897 team, we 
find that Captain Beaman, '99, is holding 
a football marked 'Championship N. E. 
L.' I think very few of us know about 
the New England Athletic League of 
1897, which although it was never 
thoroughly organized and never really 
functioned in an active manner, might 
be called the beginning of the athletic 
conference idea. Prof. Ralph E. Smith, 
1894, of the University of California, 
who was actively connected with athletics 
at the college between the period from 
1890 to 1903, was responsible for the 
conference and Dr. G. G. Parmenter, 
1900, Acting President of Colby College, 
still has the ball with the N. E. L. Cham- 
pionship marked on it. He tells me that 
he is going to see that we get the ball 
for our trophy room. 

"A lot of our alumni were interested 
to note that our football team this fall 
won more games than any team since the 
1901 team and scored more points than 
any Aggie team in history, with the 
exception of the 1892 team, captained by 
John R. Perry, '93, which scored 200 

"There are a good many other high 
spots in Aggie football history, such as 
the beating of Wesleyan by Janie* 
Williams '82, team of 1881, at a time wlun 
Wesleyan was considered one of the 'Big 
Four"; the records made by the 1899, 
1901, 1904, and 1907 teams; the 1915 
team that made such a wonderful stand 
against Harvard; and the 1902 team that 
tied Dartmouth; as well as the record of 
Allan Pond's 'little old 1919 team'; 
and then too, there were periods wlun 
football was at a low ebb, such as in 1896 
when the game was saved at Aggie by the 
hardest kind of work. 

And that's that! 

Today, every nation in Europe has a 
different standard and system of educa- 
tion from that of its neighbor. In America 
of late, ideals in general have degenerated 
and tended to be leveled down into a 
supreme desire for commercial advance- 
ment, the schools suffering accordingly. 
The new standards suggest "citizenship", 
"the right use of leisure" and other vague 
definitions as the right ideals of education. 
The student, it is said, must find in him- 
self his own ideals and standards; the 
result is4he encouragement of an aggres- 
sive individualism. The rising generations 
suffer the first and bitterly from such a 
system. They suffer in an enfeebled, 
restless, nervous physique; in their un- 
trained, undisciplined intellect; in their 
uncontrolled, unstable, emotional nature, 
in the fact that their spiritual growth has 
been dwarfed and stunted. Modern 
psychology tries to take a hand in this 
problem ' of learning. Psychology is in- 
deed a misnomer, for its exponents take 
no account of spiritual values and scarcely 
admit that the individual has a soul. 

What is the remedy for all this con- 
fusion? It is necessary to arrive at a 
definition of education that extends 
beyond the acquisition of mere brain 
knowledge, and reaches down to the 
fundamental things of life. Education 
to be complete, must be on the lines of 
an all round development, — physical, 
moral, intellectual, and spiritual, that 
the individual may be taught to utilize 
to the full every God-given power and 
faculty in the service of the Highest. 
To neglect any one of these is to court 

"Will you not write me relative to the 
football period of your time. I have 
gathered under one head the material 
that appears in the college publication*, 
but I am very desirous of getting more 
intimate details if it is possible. I should 
like very much to get your suggestions 
as to where I can get further information 
along this line. 

"In connection with gathering historic 
Aggie football data, I am trying to collect 
all the pictures of all the Aggie football 
teams that can be found. I find that in 
the shifting around of the trophy rooms 
and in the continuing change of the 
resting place of our trophy material that 
we are minus a great many football pic- 
tures. We have no pictures of the teams 
for the years which folllow: '78, '79, '80, 
'81, '82, '83, '84, '87, '88, '89, '90, '91, 
*95, '96, *97, '01, *02, '03, '05, W 
'07, '09, '12, '14. We must have had 
some of these pictures at the college at 
some time or other, but they cannot be 
found. If you have any ideas as to where 
they may be I should very much like to 
know. If you have a picture that you can 
spare or if you know where we can get a 
photograph of any one of the missing 
teams, would appreciate very much get-

Engineering Code 

The Secret of Case 

CASE field reports cover fully the cause and rem- 
edy of every interruption in the satisfactory op- 
eration of Case machines. Case engineers have re- 
duced the handling of these reports to a science. 

Month by month they chart the comparative effi- 
ciency and durability of the ports and units affected. 
Month by month the charted information is checked 
against the record of repair parts sold. From this 
record an endurance factor is established by the 
simple formula: 

Number parts used = Endurance factor for each part . 
, Number machines 

Every effort is made to reduce this factor to the 
lowest possible point. The whole process of refine- 
ment is continuous and now almost automatic in its 
operation. No weakness of any kind can escape 

This is why the development of Case machines can 
be, and has been, carried to a point far in advance of 
the ordinary. This is the secret of the efficiency 
and dependability of every Case machine.

The Aggie hockey team was snowed 
under by the Dartmouth six at Hanover 
last Wednesday afternoon by a HON of 
11' tO 2. I lie Abates showed Hashes of 
teamwork at times that excelled anything 
that they have shown at any other time 
this season. But the slack moments 
were all that the fast skating clever- with- 
l he-stick Dartmouth forwards needed to 
put the game on ice. 

Like- the Yale same, all the big scoring 
was done in the early part of the game. 
At the end of the first period the score- 
was 7 to 0. In this period Palmer was 
constantly pushing away the puck. The 
scoring was done by spurts entirely, how 
ever. Soon after the game started Manser, 
the powerful and fast center, tallied, 
foilowed almost immediately by two 
other Dartmouth goals. After this the 
Agates held the home team scoreless 
until nearly the end of the period but 
again the 1 )artmouth men were ready when 
the opining came and registered four 
times more Ix-fore the twenty minutes 
were up. In the next two period* there 
was no such free scoring. In the last 
period Aggie made its goals. Moberg 
peeeed to Taylor who caught Cleury off 
his guard for the first Aggie score. Soon 
afterward Potter tallied without aid. 

The summary: 

Dwyer, Howe, rw 

The Mass. Aggie quintet easily won 
from Northeastern at the Drill Hall last 
Saturday before a large crowd of alumni 
and students by the score of 40 to 15. 
Northeastern was clearly outclassed in 
this contest and were it not for the 
effort! of Kobera their score would have 
been much smaller. The game was 
rather slow, especially during the second 

period and the only highlights were 

Kcrranti's long shots over the North- 
eastern defence and the clever pasting 
and follow-in shots of the Agrarians. 

The game started slowly and no score 
was made until the ball had been in play 
about two minutes, when Samuels rolled 
in an undcr-the-basket shot. I'arten- 
heimer followed this with another from 
the same place after receiving a pretty 
paas from Temple. The first Northeastern 
tally came as a result of a foul shot. 
Throughout the first half the visitors 
were only able to score six points while 
Partenheimer, Samuels, Jones and Fer- 
ranti all recorded lor M.A.C. The period 
ended with Aggie leading 15-6. 

Smiley started the second jR-riod in 
place of Temple while the rest of the 
lineup remained unchanged. Ferranti 
began the scoring with a sensational shot 
over the Northeastern five-man defence 
and Partenheimer increased the score by 
a clever follow-in. The Agates tallied 
almost at will until the score was swollen 
to 38-11 when they froze the ball and 
r e s o r t ed to a bit of passing practice. The 

visitors sank two fioor baskets during the 
remainder of the game, while Aggie got a 
similar number, Temple dropping one in 
just as the final shot was fired.
